B.A. Degree

Language is the embodiment of culture and an expression of a people’s way of thinking, feeling and viewing the world. We have an increasing need to communicate directly with other peoples to achieve mutual understanding. To learn a new language opens new avenues of thought, new modes of expression and new models of understanding. The study of foreign languages and literatures liberates the student from the confines of one culture.

Foreign language majors are encouraged to spend one or both semesters of their junior year in an exchange program appropriate to their language focus.
