About Our Department

The Department of Modern Languages and Classics is your gateway to opportunity and success in today’s shrinking world. Mastering another language can enhance your employability in a wide range of fields, from financial services to journalism to diplomacy. Exploring the classics, in language and culture, can build skills that will serve you in many professions. And, of course, studies here can enrich your life away from work, too, regardless of your major or your goals.

Guiding your experience in our department are nearly three dozen full-time faculty members and a half dozen graduate assistants. All are dedicated to helping you achieve, and our faculty are also engaged in active research beyond their teaching commitments. We believe small classes are key to helping language students excel in speaking, listening, reading, and writing.

We’re also committed to getting you out of the classroom and into real-world language experiences. Exchange and study abroad opportunities will take you around the world, and our majors are required to spend time studying in a place where their language is spoken.
