Welcome to World Languages!

Department of World Languages

Welcome to the Department of World Languages. As we move into the 21st century it is essential that we are able to communicate effectively in more than one language. Not only should we be able to speak, listen, read, and write other languages, but we should also have a good understanding of the cultures in which the languages are spoken.

Our department offers different levels of transferable courses in a variety of languages. French, German, and Spanish are taught in a six course sequence. Courses in literature, composition, and culture are available in French, German, and Spanish. Spanish offerings also include professional courses.
