Department of Modern and Classical Languages and Literature

Learning  other languages is key to understanding other cultures and, in turn, makes possible a deeper understanding of one's own culture and language. Our program prepares graduates to thrive in a global society and to take their place as leaders and innovators in an increasingly interconnected world.
