Our Modern Languages major offers our students the flexibility to design a program of study that combines the study of at least two languages with other complementary upper-division courses. Like our other majors, Modern Language majors must study abroad for at least one semester in a country where their primary language of interest is spoken. Depending on their interests, students will also complement their studies with a course in linguistics, literary criticism and theory, foreign language pedagogy, or will serve as a mentor in one of our introductory language courses.
Students interested in majoring in Modern Languages should contact a professor who teaches in their primary language of interest and should work closely with that professor to design a cohesive program of study. We do not offer a minor in Modern Languages.
