Welcome to World Languages & Cultures!

The Department of World Languages and Cultures is more than just a place, more than just a college. Here we explore our connections to people and community through language and culture. We are a unique and diverse department and believe an essential part of becoming an educated person is understanding oneself and how we connect with people around the world. 

We invite anyone interested in learning a language, exploring different cultures, and meeting interesting people to join our department and celebrate diversity with our incredible students and faculty.
