Why Study World Languages and Cultural Studies?

A highly valued asset in today’s global workplace, second-language study provides you with opportunities and experiences that are not available to individuals who are only proficient in one language. 

As a world languages and cultural studies major, you may choose to concentrate in Spanish or Italian Studies. We no longer offer concentrations in French or Romance Languages.
