Departmental Programs

The study of foreign languages and cultures truly responds to national and international needs. Language is the key to mutual understanding among nations. The Department is structured to provide all students with valuable and useful linguistic tools. Students who specialize in fields other than foreign languages receive collateral cultural training, to be used as a necessary skill in business, public administration, teaching, translation, interpretation, and international relations.

The Department offers minors and certificates of proficiency in French and Spanish. Courses are available in Arabic, Chinese, German, Japanese, Portuguese, Swahili, WOLOF, Yoruba, and other critical or less frequently taught languages. In cooperation with the Middle East Institute in Washington, D. C., it offers the Arabic Language Program at Morgan.

Additionally, the Department has a graduate program, leading to the M.A. in International Studies.
