Modern Languages at Pacific University

Modern Languages

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.
