Modern Languages hero

Your understanding of other languages and cultures makes you a more informed citizen and can provide you with a marketable skill. 

As a Department of Modern Languages graduate, you will:

  • Possess language proficiency
  • Be culturally competent
  • Have the analytical and communicative skills to succeed in any field
  • Be prepared to lead effectively in a wide variety of cultural and professional situations

Your coursework will be broad and diverse and will supplement any graduate degree well. The immediate goal of taking second language course work is to develop your proficiency in reading, writing, listening and speaking, as well as culture of a foreign country.

In an increasingly multicultural world, graduates proficient in a second or third language are sought after by employers in most industries. Our grads are at work in education, government, business, social services, healthcare and many other fields.
