French/Spanish

Language study opens the way to understanding and communication with various peoples, cultures, civilizations and literature. It involves performance skills in the foreign language (speaking, reading, writing and understanding) and command of the subject matter (literature, history, language).

The Department of Modern Languages and Classics offers majors and minors in French and Spanish, and beginning classes in Arabic and Chinese. Classical languages and Italian language may be studied at John Cabot University in Rome, and Japanese can be undertaken via our affiliation with Kansai Gaidai University in Osaka, Japan. Please consult with the Associate Dean's office to discuss this exchange option.

Foreign language majors must study abroad for at least one term.
