NOT YOUR AVERAGE LANGUAGE PROGRAM
You’ll love this language minor if you want to improve your communication skills and get inside access to international culture or business. Our language classrooms are places of creative learning, where we explore other cultures and eras through word, art, and film. The experience will do more than enrich your major — our alumni have found their language coursework helps their resumes stand out when they enter the job market or apply to graduate school. The Modern Languages program provides courses in Spanish, French, German, and Italian with the opportunity to minor in Spanish, French, or German, or a combination of any two.
Students pursuing a Modern Languages Minor take either five courses in French, German, or Spanish, or three courses in one of those languages and two courses in another language, including Italian, Latin, or Greek.
