Modern, Foreign & Classical Languages
One of the immediate objectives of the Department of Modern Foreign and Classical Languages is to teach the fundamental skills of listening, speaking, writing, and reading of another language. This objective is focused on students developing the ability to communicate on various levels in the target language and to gain an appreciation of the literature written in that language.
Another objective of the department is to convey to students a knowledge and understanding of a different language, people and culture and to give them a method of viewing the world with a broader perspective.
The department offerings include the following languages: Spanish, French, German, Greek and Latin.
