Department of Modern and Classical Languages and Literatures
Welcome to the Department of Modern and Classical Languages and Literatures
The Department of Modern and Classical Languages and Literatures believes that the study of a language should enable the student to participate in oral and written communication in the language, gain knowledge and understanding of the cultures of the world, connect with other disciplines and acquire knowledge that may be unavailable to the monolingual English speaker, develop insight into the nature of language and culture, and participate in communities at home and abroad.
Our faculty is well-recognized for their expertise in Golden Age literature; contemporary Mexican, South American, and Peninsular literature; creative writing in Spanish; and Hispanic culture.
Languages and Cultures
Learning another language changes your life. It gives you an opportunity to travel to another country and study art, music, and history. You become bilingual and bicultural.
