Modern Literature and Languages
The department offers bachelor's degrees in French, German and Spanish. All programs strongly encourage students to study abroad.
Through affiliation with IES Abroad, students may study the French language and literature in Paris or Nantes. German students frequently study in Germany and Austria. Programs in Spanish are available in Mexico and Spain.
Students also may work with advisors to study in other countries where these languages are predominant.
More than 100 programs, covering every inhabited continent, offer opportunities to experience the sounds, smells, language, politics, and people of another culture. From the heart of London to the outback of Australia, from Japan to Chile to Austria to Zimbabwe, international study programs are unforgettable-which is just one reason about half of our students chooses to study abroad.
