A Major in World Languages and Cultures--Your Ticket to Working in a Global Economy.
Students majoring in Spanish, French, or German prepare to communicate and connect in the multicultural and multilingual world we share. . . and so much more. Master the basics of grammar and conversation, then move on to advanced classes in language, literature and culture. Our teaching methods follow the standards of the American Council on the Teaching of Foreign Languages (ACTFL) to give you both linguistic and cultural proficiency.
Customize your Major! Our flexible Major in World Languages and Cultures allows you to combine your Spanish, French or German classes with work in other departments related to international or diversity studies. Choose coursework from areas such as history, geography, political science, or business. Or choose a linguistic focus and show your language versatility by picking up introductory courses in a second (or third or fourth) world language. We offer beginning courses in Chinese. Many students double major or minor in related fields such as History, Political Science, Philosophy, Communication Studies, Military Science, or Entrepreneurship.
A Major in World Languages and Cultures gives you skills employers want. Our students can form relationships with people from diverse communities, work comfortably with uncertainty and ambiguity, and communicate effectively in both English and their world language. Our recent graduates currently enjoy careers including insurance agent, law enforcement dispatcher, nurse, behavior specialist, travel agent, college admissions recruiter, study abroad coordinator, and lawyer.
