Build your future in the global economy.
The world is changing rapidly, driven by the transfer of information and goods across borders and oceans. Lay a solid foundation for your professional life by developing practical skills that translate between cultures, technologies and markets. Wherever your future takes you, your bilingual communication skills put you on firmer footing than your monolingual peers.
The Department of Modern Languages & Cultures offers multiple programs focused on language proficiency and cultural competence. You will experience individualized attention from faculty who have lived in countries where their languages are spoken. You can also gain in-country experience and establish friendships and contacts that last a lifetime. In cooperation with the Institute for Study Abroad, we place you in universities around the world where you can take your language skills to the next level.
Whatever your major or goals, a second language is an invaluable addition to any skills portfolio. When you speak a second language, your job search expands beyond the English-only market. Government, private and academic sectors value your ability to adapt and function successfully in another culture and language. The global competition is multilingual. Are you?
