College of Liberal Arts: Department of Modern Languages

Welcome to the Department of Modern Languages

The Department of Modern Languages, Literatures and Cultural Studies promotes the study and teaching of second languages and the study of the literatures and cultures produced by the peoples of those languages.

The Department offers both general introductions to these languages and cultures as well as advanced study for the training of teachers, scholars, and other professionals. The Department also serves as a catalyst for the creation of community events and activities to promote cross-cultural and cross-disciplinary understanding, communication, and analysis.

The Department fosters the intellectual advancement of its teaching faculty by enabling the pursuit of scholarly goals.
