Language And Culture Studies

Welcome, Bienvenido, Bienvenue, Willkommen, Benvenuto, ようこそ!

Our program in Language and Culture Studies is designed to help students acquire a high level of proficiency in a specific language and deep knowledge about the cultures related to the language. Students develop skills in linguistic, cultural, and literary analysis to be prepared for careers in a field where they can use their second language at a professional level. We offer the following language:

  • French
  • German
  • Italian (elementary level)
  • Japanese (elementary and intermediate levels)
  • Spanish

We strongly encourage students to study abroad for one or two semesters during their junior year in:

  • Chile: Valparaíso (full language immersion)
  • France: Caen (full language immersion)
  • France: Paris (partial language immersion)
  • Germany: Marburg (full or partial language immersion)
  • Japan: Osaka (partial language immersion)
  • Spain: Burgos or Pamplona (full language immersion)
  • or in another approved program abroad

Our teacher education programs in French, German, and Spanish are recognized for their excellence by the American Council on the Teaching of Foreign Languages.
