Foreign Languages

The Department of Foreign Languages is committed to graduating women and men proficient in the second language of their choice, conscious and accepting of the crucial role language, culture and humanistic literacy play in the diverse world of the 21st century. We recognize the need to instill respect for multicultural awareness, historical and global perspectives, tolerance and appreciation for the traditions from which we as individuals and those around us spring.
