The department offers bachelor's degrees in French, German and Spanish. Courses are also offered in First-Year American Sign Language and Arabic. Our programs strongly encourage students to study abroad.
Through an affiliation with IES Abroad, students may study French language and literature in Paris or Nantes. German students frequently study in Germany and Austria. Programs in Spanish are available in Mexico and Spain.
Students also may work with advisors to study in other countries where these languages are predominant.
More than 100 programs, covering every inhabited continent, offer opportunities to experience the sounds, smells, language, politics and people of another culture. From the heart of London to the outback of Australia, from Japan to Chile to Austria to Zimbabwe, international study programs are unforgettable-which is just one reason about half of our students choose to study abroad.
