The Department of Modern Languages offers a BA in French and Spanish and minors in French and Spanish. For students interested in teaching in bilingual classrooms (Spanish/English), the Department offers an Interdisciplinary Major in Bilingual and Multicultural Studies.

Our mission is to provide students with a well-rounded liberal arts background that exposes them to the major disciplines. We also ensure that our students gain competency in their target language and familiarity with its literature, history, and culture.
