Welcome to the Department of Modern Languages and Literatures

The study of languages, literatures, and cultures has long been a cornerstone of the liberal arts tradition. Today, in the global environment of the 21st century, cultural literacy and understanding are even more critical. Our multicultural faculty members are a diverse group of specialists in their fields. Embracing innovative methods for teaching and research, they help prepare their students for the responsibilities of global citizenship.

We offer courses in Arabic, Chinese, French, German, Hebrew, Italian, Latin, and Spanish and participate in study-abroad programs. In addition, our students benefit from close interactions with faculty and small class sizes.
