Programs of Study

As a Modern Languages and Literatures major, you'll be challenged work toward mastery of a second language and to extend your studies as far as possible in history, economics, management, literature, linguistics, philosophy, art, religion, social work, and music.

For all language majors, extended time in an organized program of study abroad is highly desirable, and you'll be expected to take advantage of extracurricular opportunities for contact with languages and cultures—such as language clubs, foreign films, and other cultural events.
