The Department of World Languages and Cultures provides many resources to support our undergraduate and graduate programs. We also offer several non-degree academic programs.

English as a Second Language

Students at any level of proficiency, from beginning to advanced English skills, are encouraged to participate in our program. We offer part-time and full-time courses of study. Both part-time and full-time students meet for three hours twice per week for a comprehensive course that includes grammar, vocabulary, reading, writing, speaking and listening components. Full-time students will also attend our Multimedia English Engagement class, which takes place in the ESL computer lab.

Study Abroad

Your Passport to Success

Study Abroad adds an invaluable dimension to a student's academic, cultural, and professional development, and provides an advantage in an increasingly competitive job market. Firsthand experience of other countries and cultures provides a clearer understanding of ourselves, our own society and culture, our place in the global community, and our common human heritage.

Students earn college credit while studying abroad. During the winter break,spring and summer semester, the Department will offer programs to Spain, Italy, Canada and England.
