Learning a foreign language does more than give you the ability to say foreign words; it may make you smarter and better!   Our program is designed to teach you how to speak and read one or more foreign languages, as well as help you understand the cultures and literatures of other countries.

A degree in Modern Foreign Languages opens the doors to many careers in translation, interpretation, Government, the Foreign Service and more.  Adding a secondary MOFL major or a minor can give a boost to your first major’s career prospects as well as increase your understanding of the world.
