Our classes open the doors of the world, promote cultural understanding, and social justice. Our outstanding professors, study abroad experiences, interdisciplinary research, and community-based learning opportunities, prepare our graduates to find jobs in a variety of fields, including education, law, medicine, business, and the government. We offer B.A programs in French, Modern Languages and Spanish, minor programs in Chinese, French, German, Italian, and Spanish, and a teaching credential in Spanish. Our Japanese classes are very popular. These vibrant programs teach languages and important aspects of the cultures that speak them, like literature, film, and the arts.
