Modern Languages and Literatures

We will prepare you for success in a globalized world. Whether your interests include local or international business, cultural and linguistic enrichment or graduate study, foreign or federal service, non-governmental work or education, medical professions or social work, we offer major and minor programs that will strengthen your academic and professional profile. We can help you combine specialized language training with interdisciplinary programs of study, and we work with many students to pair one of our majors with another major, from neuroscience to English.

Major & Minor Programs

While at Moravian you will engage with cultures of the world through the study of language, literature, film and new media. Experience the intellectual and personal enrichment that comes with learning new languages—Arabic, Chinese, French, German, Italian, Latin and Spanish—and encountering the diverse cultures that they represent.

Cultural Studies Majors

Many students enhance their education through a semester study abroad or a summer or May term program. In Bethlehem, students take advantage of local internships, co-curricular activities organized by the language clubs, and undergraduate research programs like SOARHonors, and undergraduate conferences. Some of our students in those programs have also been awarded either research or teaching Fulbright Scholarships.
