Program Guides

Native Speakers

Native speakers are encouraged to take courses in French or Spanish.  Students who graduated from high school in a French- or Spanish-speaking country may fulfill coursework for a major in Modern Languages by completing 15 hours of upper-division courses in the native language, French or Spanish.  Native speakers of any language taught in the department are not allowed to enroll in lower-division courses in that language.  Consult with the chairperson of the department or the Modern Languages Program coordinator.

General Overview

The Modern Languages Program within the Department of English and Modern Languages offers a thorough program of study oriented to the individual. Active and interested faculty members work closely with students to focus on areas of interest in Chinese, French, and Spanish. Faculty members have studied, done research or resided in countries where those languages are spoken.

Students enjoy opportunities to learn through the most modern and effective methods and techniques. Our mediated classrooms allow them to view DVDs and videos with picture and audio that rival a movie theatre experience. Instructors can visit target language websites projected on the big screen to conduct, for example, a virtual tour of an art museum. Language clubs and native speakers who act as conversation partners give students further opportunities for success.
