ENTERING INTO A RICH CULTURAL WORLD. Studying French, Italian, Portuguese and/or Spanish languages and literatures opens the door to new perspectives, which in turn provides students with a deeper understanding of their own culture in relation to other traditions.
BETTER JOB OPPORTUNITIES. Given that these languages are so important in Western Society students can participate in our globalized world in a vital manner. Students who speak one of these languages and are versed in the many aspects of the cultures involved have better job opportunities both in the United States and abroad. In the fields of medicine, law, international business, education, psychology, political sciences, and many others, knowing a second language and its culture will be a great asset.
GAIN A DEEPER UNDERSTANDING AND SELF-CONFIDENCE. Our language majors are confident as they gain knowledge and a new perspective of their lives that will enable them to feel comfortable in different parts of the world.
ACQUIRING A SECOND LANGUAGE
Students will be taught using the most current methodology, strategies and technologies available, and assessed according to performance-based procedures, in small language classes.
