About the Department of Languages

The Department of Languages is dedicated to the study of nine languages and their respective literatures and cultures, with courses ranging from introductory language skills to upper-level courses on specific topics. Our courses focus on the many different facets of literary, cultural, and linguistic expression found in the spoken and written languages featured in our department. More than 50 faculty members guide undergraduate students in understanding the issues involved in approaching another culture through the language of that culture. All languages majors experience this alternative world first-hand through study abroad. 

Undergraduate Degrees in Languages

Language students may choose from three bachelors degrees, all of which stress substantive upper-level study in the humanities:

  • B.A. in Modern Languages - Available in American Sign Language, Chinese, French, German, Italian, Japanese, and Spanish.

  • B.A. in Language and International Business  - Available in Chinese, French, German, Italian, Japanese, and Spanish. Includes rigorous study in one of the following professional options: Applied International Economics, International Trade, or Tourism. Courses for these options are taught in colleges other than the College of Architecture, Arts, and Humanities (AAH) that houses the Department of Languages.

  • B.S. in Language and International Health  - Available in Spanish, French, and Chinese. Administered jointly by the Department of Languages and the Department of Public Health Sciences in the College of Behavioral, Social and Health Sciences.
