 Discover the World in another Language

"Those who know nothing of foreign languages know nothing of their own." (Wer fremde Sprachen nicht kennt, weiƟ nichts von seiner eigenen)

Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

Do you have an interest in foreign languages? Do you want to be exposed to new cultures and new ways of thinking? Studying a foreign language gives you the skills you need to understand better other cultures (and hence your own) and to communicate and succeed in a global community. The ability to speak a second language is necessary for many careers in international business, marketing, mass media communications, government service and teaching.

Empower yourself to explore the language, literature and culture of another country in an exciting avenue of learning. As a major or minor, you will experience challenging but fascinating coursework, supportive faculty and staff, and valuable hands-on experience that prepares you for your future career.

We invite you to explore our Web site, and please contact us for more information. We look forward to hearing from you!
