World Languages & International Studies
The study of World Languages and International Studies and cultures truly responds to national and international needs. Language is the key to mutual understanding among nations. The Department is structured to provide all students with valuable and useful linguistic tools. Students who specialize in fields other than World Languages and International Studies receive collateral cultural training, to be used as a necessary skill in business, public administration, teaching, translation, interpretation, and international relations.
The Department offers minors and certificates of proficiency in French and Spanish and courses in Arabic, Chinese, French, German, Japanese, Latin, Portuguese, Spanish, Swahili, Yoruba, Wolof and other critical or less frequently taught languages.
