About the Department

Explore the world and your place in it through the study of language. Our students prepare for lives as global citizens, learning to communicate across languages and cultures. A rich curriculum is integrated with extensive cultural immersion: trips, speakers, festivals, performances, and (of course!) study abroad. Guiding our students are faculty members from over a dozen countries speaking as many languages. Together we create a dynamic community reflective of the world we live in: complex, multicultural, and interconnected.
