Academic Programs


The goal of the Department of Modern Languages is to give students the opportunity to widen their perspectives and to grow in their appreciation for other cultures in their multiple expressions. Through the department, students are given opportunities to study and explore Spanish, French, Arabic, Russian, German, Swahili and American Sign Language. Our interdisciplinary approach to the study of modern languages includes a range of service-oriented learning experiences that enable students to enjoy and participate more fully in the varied cultural richness of God's world. Not only does language study offer lasting enrichment to a student's life, but it is our expectation that they will develop an ability to interact with and participate in the lives of the people whose language they are learning.
