Language & Cultural Studies (Minor)

Overview

NHP 2The need for multilingual communication continues to grow as globalization affects our businesses, our politics, our economics and our teaching. Our students study historical, political and literary relations across national, linguistic and cultural boundaries. Our graduates are sensitive to the needs of the world community, open to exploring new ways to improve life through communication and ready to approach complex issues from an intercultural perspective.

Our minor in language and cultural studies supports any career path you choose by providing you with a high level of linguistic and cross-cultural understanding. Many of the courses in the program are interdisciplinary, connecting concepts from courses in languages with those in international affairs, history and literature. 

We encourage you to experience and gain an appreciation for the artistic expressions of the cultures associated with the languages we offer: Spanish, French, and Arabic. Furthermore, we help you reflect on the interdependent nature of the world, considering the complexity and richness of diverse cultures while developing your language skills.
