One language sets you in a corridor for life. Two languages open every door along the way.❞— Frank Smith

Language and communication are at the heart of a liberal arts education. It is the mission of the Department of Modern Foreign Languages and Literatures, therefore, to prepare you to communicate effectively in a multicultural American society and in an increasingly interconnected, diverse world. We strive to equip you with the linguistic tools and analytical skills you need to make sense of the complexity of the target cultures you study. We promote an open and informed exchange of ideas through the study of language, culture and literature; we encourage you to study beyond the classroom, to experience language in different community settings and to become life-long learners.
