Faculty and Students
The Department of World Languages & Literature engages students in the study of languages, cultures, and literary traditions. Learning to speak languages of the world opens doors for travel and creates professional opportunities in such diverse fields as education, law, government, international affairs, business, and many others. Courses and programs we offer encourage students to be critical thinking citizens and leaders of local and global communities. Our students learn to view the world from diverse perspectives, and to cross borders through effective communication based on an appreciation of cultural diversity.
