The Foreign Languages Program

¡Bienvenidos! Bienvenue! 欢迎

With members from different countries, the Foreign Languages Program faculty embodies and promotes diversity and multiculturalism so that students function effectively as global citizens.

The Foreign Languages Program offers degrees for the Spanish major; the student seeking North Carolina Teacher Licensure in Spanish, grades K-12; the Education major seeking an academic concentration in Spanish; and the student majoring in another subject who wishes to develop a minor in Spanish or simply to choose an elective or two in a foreign language.

In our programs, students acquire basic and advanced skills by studying language, literature, and cultures; develop cross-cultural competency; enhance the understanding of their own language; and sharpen their critical thinking skills.

The Foreign Languages Program also offers activities to enhance formal language study and regularly sends students for a semester or summer study to Spain, Ecuador, Costa Rica, and other countries.
