If you're interested in learning the language and exploring the culture of other countries, we have a wide range of choices for you. The Department of World Languages and Literatures offers courses in several languages with Bachelor of Arts degrees available in French, German, Japanese, and Spanish.

We regularly offer courses in the following languages :

  • Arabic
  • French
  • German
  • Italian

Students who complete a major in a language with teaching certification will be in high demand for jobs in education.
