The Department of World Languages and Cultures (WLC) offers programs in Chinese, French, German, and Spanish. The richness and diversity of offerings permit our students to find multilevel academic opportunities under one single department. WLC provides a comprehensive, unifying theme around the study of international languages and cultures. Within this framework, the Department’s programs of languages and cultures make possible the acquisition of languages that permit a deeper interaction among national ethnic groups and international cultures.
The Department of World Languages and Cultures firmly believes that students with an international understanding of cultural, ethnic, and racial issues, coupled with second languages competency, will be better equipped to meet the professional challenges of the 21st century.
