Our department includes majors and minors in French and Spanish, as well as minors in German and Italian. The department also offers Arabic, Chinese, Japanese, and Tagalog depending on demand. Lower division language courses enable students to attain foreign language proficiency before going on to upper division courses in literature, film, culture, and advanced language. A flexible placement policy allows students with foreign language skills to begin their coursework at the most suitable level as well as a flexible equivalency process for those that wish to study abroad.
Our English as a Second Language program provides intensive English instruction and a cultural, social, and academic orientation to the United States to develop language and intercultural skills.
