MODERN LANGUAGE STUDIES

Chinese!

Français!

Deutsch!

¡Español!

Studying another language is an exciting and rewarding experience, not to mention a career path that leads to many opportunities in today's global marketplace. Whether as a major or a minor program, language study enhances your education, marketability, and broadens your horizons: not only do you know another language, but you also are sensitized to another culture (its history, literature, economy, beliefs, etc.). Through language study you will:

  • Learn and use cross-cultural communication skills
  • Develop a better understanding of other people and different cultures
  • Experience another culture's artistic, literary, socio-political, and historical contributions that have changed and continue to change the world
  • Appreciate and celebrate world diversity
  • Gain new insights into and improve your own native language
  • Understand more fully your place, and your native culture's place, on a global scale

All of these skills are sought after in today's market: business, education, social work, criminal justice, law, banking, government, health care, etc.

So, what are you waiting for? Come and explore languages and cultures with Modern Language Studies!
