Studying Modern Languages is about far more than just learning how to communicate in another language. It is about exploring other identities and values through language, literature, history and culture in a global community.

The Department of Modern Languages offers instruction in four languages French, German, Japanese and Spanish (Beginner to Advanced) and in linguistics. Small class sizes, cutting-edge language-learning technology and the diverse expertise of our instructors ensure you will find studying languages to be a lively and satisfying experience.

You will also be introduced to the cultures the language is spoken in through the study of literature, history, and film.

Classes are taught in the language being studied—for example, Japanese courses are taught in Japanese and Spanish courses in Spanish. You can specialize in one language or study a combination.
