In the Department of Modern Languages and Linguistics, we are committed to preparing our students for success in a diverse, multicultural, multilingual, and globalized world. Students come to our department with a wide variety of interests, ranging from foreign language acquisition and teaching, linguistics, multicultural enrichment, and global humanities and arts to federal and foreign service and international business. To these students we offer major and minor programs that will strengthen their academic and professional profile. We can help you combine specialized language training with interdisciplinary programs of study. Through the Winthrop-King Institute, undergraduate and graduate scholarships are available for study and research abroad, while many faculty spearhead study abroad and overseas exchange programs.
