What can Modern Languages do for you?
Modern Languages provides students with a comprehensive study of Spanish grammar and culture in Latin America and peninsular Spain, French grammar and culture in Africa and France, and American Sign Language.
The objectives of the Modern Languages coursework include developing proficiency in reading, writing, speaking, listening, and signing, respectively.
While some language courses elsewhere solely emphasize speaking and listening, our classes develop students’ proficiency in all areas of a language. Students will also be able to engage with cultural issues in a globalized context.
