The Department of Modern Foreign Languages & Literatures develops language proficiency to foster critical thinking through literary, cinematic, and linguistic analysis and hence to establish incisive perspectives on cultures and civilizations, including our own. The many faculty and student accomplishments in research, teaching, and service to the community build a solid foundation for exciting professional futures by informed, engaged citizens.

Students can earn a B.A. in French, German, Italian, Russian, or Spanish with concentrations in Literature and Culture or Language and World Business. A bachelor's degree in the Asian Studies Interdisciplinary Program can include a concentration in Chinese or Japanese, and the parallel Latin American Studies Program includes a Portuguese concentration.

We also provide laboratory-based language learning in Hebrew, and Persian. For more information, please visit "Taped Language Program".
