Majors and Courses

"Those who know nothing of foreign languages know nothing of their own." Goethe

A complete list of courses provides descriptions and requirements for all French, German, MDFL, and Spanish classes offered by the Department.

Majors and Minors

Students can major or minor in French, German or Spanish, or in Modern Foreign Languages (MDFL), which combines the study of two different world languages. During their language studies, majors assemble a senior portfolio to document their progress in the target language and toward the department's intended student learning outcomes. Language majors work closely with their faculty advisor and later present to the completed portfolio before graduation.

Advising

Whether a foreign language is your only major, or one of your majors, every student majoring in a world language is assigned a faculty advisor within the department. Your advisor will work closely with you to help you decide on classes, to keep you on track and on task in fulfilling the General education requirements, and to assist you with your study abroad, graduate school, and career choices and aspirations.
