World Language Department

Our World Language Department focuses on the growth and development of the target language in each student, their knowledge of the country where the language is natively spoken, and their understanding of the culture while comparing it to their own. Our World Language department accompanies our learners on a journey to enhance their levels of listening, speaking, reading, and writing skills using interpretive, interpersonal, and presentational modes of communication. The majority of the courses are conducted in the target language. The students are expected to become effective communicators and demonstrate an understanding of the relationships developed through practice and leadership. We invite students to understand the regional and global perspectives of (and in) the target language. Students make connections through language with other disciplines, and with multilingual communities.
