Reach beyond your borders

Learning about another culture through language makes you a more powerful and agile thinker, and a better citizen of the world.

732Students majoring in a language
#2Second largest German program in the US
50%More language majors than peer institutions

Learning a language will do more than prepare you for the international workplace. Being bilingual will give you a more informed, enlightened, and empathetic view of people and cultures. It’s about connecting with people, the joy of experiencing the world from another perspective, and the sense of confidence you’ll feel when you enter new situations in life.
