Is Modern Languages & Literatures Right for You?

The Department of Modern Languages & Literatures (MLL) offers diverse programs aimed at meeting the needs of today's students. Our courses focus on topics including language, cultural studies, linguistics, literature, and teacher education.

MLL strives to enhance students' knowledge of language and the humanities through various means, such as reading representative authors in the languages in which they wrote, familiarizing students with the cultural traditions of the peoples whose language they study, and expanding students' knowledge of linguistics and socio-cultural contexts. Through service learning opportunities, many of our majors apply their growing knowledge of languages and cultures to authentic community contexts.
