International Languages, Literatures and Cultures

We offer five majors and ten minors in the Department of International Languages, Literatures, and Cultures:  French, German, Spanish, Asian Studies, and Latin American Studies.  There are minors in French, German, Italian, Japanese, Spanish, African Studies, Asian Studies, European Studies, Middle Eastern Studies, and Latin American Studies.  Asian Studies, French, Latin American Studies and Spanish offer honors in the major. There are other language courses as well:  Arabic, Chinese, Greek, Latin, Hebrew, Portuguese, and Russian, all of which can be credited toward one of the area studies programs above.

The Department of International Languages, Literatures, and Cultures supports those of all religions and nationalities, undocumented students, and refugees. 

We believe that any anti-immigrant policies now or in the future made by the US government are violations of justice, freedom, and our values as a nation. If you are feeling threatened, please know that in addition to the Department of International Languages, Literatures, and Cultures there are many people on campus that support you.

Furthermore, let it be known that the Department of International Languages, Literatures, and Cultures defends and advances the civil rights of all and objects to policies that exclude any group from the exercise of equal rights under the law.  If you are feeling threatened, please know that in addition to the Department of International Languages, Literatures, and Cultures there are many people on campus that support you.
