Modern Languages and Cultures, BA


This program will prepare you for graduate school in foreign languages or for employment in the fields of travel and tourism, media and entertainment, diplomacy, teaching, and public service.

The BA in Modern Languages and Cultures is designed for students who wish to acquire linguistic, cultural, and literary skills in one or two foreign languages. We offer a wide variety of courses in nine languages and cultures: Arabic, Chinese, French, Italian, Japanese, Latin, Portuguese, Russian, and Spanish. We offer numerous study abroad opportunities and we strongly encourage our students to take advantage of one or more of these enriching experiences. Instead of a second language, you may choose from among four interdisciplinary area studies tracks.
