World Languages Index

The study of modern languages teaches unique intellectual skills and exposes students to peoples and aspects of cultures that enhance one’s appreciation of the world of which we are a part. Today, the globalization and diversification of politics, the economy and our society have increased the importance of studying a foreign language. Our courses advance learning of high-level synthetic and analytical thinking, enhance the ability of students to communicate, and promote an understanding of other cultures from within those cultures. Foreign languages are a springboard from which students will enrich their current studies and later research.
