The Department of Languages, Literatures and Cultures is a multidisciplinary unit that offers students the opportunity to learn languages, develop an understanding of literary and cultural traditions, and pursue studies in the field of Linguistics. The Department offers language courses in Arabic, Chinese, German, Hebrew, Italian, Japanese, and Spanish, and Degree Plans in German, Indigenous Studies, Italian, Linguistics, Spanish, Spanish Latin American Studies and World Language Studies. On an ad-hoc basis other languages such as Mohawk, Inuktitut and Portuguese are offered.
 

Learning a language prepares students to travel, live, or work internationally and makes them more linguistically competent in Canada’s multicultural environment. A degree focusing on languages, literatures and cultures, or Linguistics provides students with valuable transferable skills that are increasingly important in our global world. The Department encourages students in all our disciplines to participate in one of the many international study opportunities supported by Queen's.

Our vibrant and diverse unit has over 30 full-time faculty members.
Faculty members and students are supported by 2 dedicated staff members.

You can find us in Kingston Hall. Our main office is on the fourth floor.
