Department of Modern & Classical Languages
The Department of Modern and Classical Languages is part of the Division of World Languages and Cultures, and it offers major programs leading to a Bachelor of Arts degree in Modern Languages with concentrations in Arabic, Chinese, French, and French with Business Emphasis. These degrees are designed to develop proficiency in the target language while introducing the student to the culture, history, and literature of their respective countries of study. The B.A. in French with Business Emphasis builds upon the study of culture, history, and literature by including coursework in accounting, business administration, and marketing in an international context. The A.A. degree in Core Curriculum with Pathway Courses in Modern Languages is essentially comprised of the Core Curriculum requirements for Areas A-E, plus the Area F requirements for regular Modern Languages degrees. The Department offers minors in Arabic, Chinese, French, German, Korean, and Russian, and coursework is also available in Italian, Japanese, and Latin language in either regular classroom settings or through a self-instructional model that complies with the standards of NASILP (the National Association of Self-Instructional Language Programs).
