About Classical & Modern Languages Department

Liberal Arts Culture

The study of a second language engages people in the exploration of cultural diversity: new worlds of people, customs, literature, and history suddenly become more understandable when they can be approached directly through the primary language. It is one of the cornerstones of a liberal arts and sciences education and provides a skill set that uniquely equips the second language learner for today’s diverse workplace and globalized economy.
