Knowing another language and being able to understand different cultures are valuable skills — skills that you will gain if you study with us. We offer majors and minors in several languages, and classes in even more. We will teach you not only how to talk in another language but how to understand cultures on a deeper level by looking at their arts, histories, and philosophies. Our goal is to help you think critically and communicate effectively in local, national, and global communities.
Enhance Your FutureBeing able to speak a foreign language can help you in almost any career field. Whether you're interested in a future in medicine, government, education, business, social work, tourism and hospitality, or many other fields, the ability to communicate with others will give you an advantage with many employers.
Studying a foreign language leads to proficiency in reading, listening, writing and speaking, while cultivating knowledge of the literature, philosophy, history, and cultures associated with a particular language. If you are considering a double major — something many of our students do — knowing a second language can enhance your study of English, finance, history, journalism and communications, law, marketing, political science, public administration, sociology, engineering, chemistry, and medicine.
