About Foreign Languages and Literatures


Studying a foreign language prepares students for dynamic careers in areas such as translation, business, tourism, banking, education and service industries. We offer undergraduate majors in French, German and Spanish and minors in Chinese, French, German, Italian, Japanese, Russian and Spanish.

We have a highly engaged and well-published faculty. They work closely with students not only in teaching but also in research through programs such as the Student Engagement Fund or the Undergraduate Special Opportunities in Artistry and Research Program.

We offer a graduate degree in Spanish, have certificates in German and Spanish and have a partnership with the Department of Educational Technology, Research and Assessment to offer certification in instructional technology. Recently, we entered into a partnership with the College of Law to offer an accelerated law degree.
