Department of Languages, Literatures and Cultures


The Department of Languages, Literatures, and Cultures offers a wide range of Degree Plans in the broad areas of languages, literatures and cultures, and linguistics:

The Major and Medial Degree Plans, and their associated courses, will examine the influence of key social, historical, political and artistic developments, and sharpen their awareness of varied cultural traditions. In many cases, studies can be enhanced through study abroad and exchange opportunities.

In the Minor/General Plans you will learn to communicate in one or more languages other than English and/or receive an introduction to their literatures and cultures. The Plans prepare you for an international career, allow you to gain insights into literatures and cultures, and prepare you for a global future.

Linguistics is the scientific study of language, from the sounds of speech to the internal structure and meaning of words, phrases and sentences. Linguists (people who are specialists in Linguistics) investigate specific languages with a view to understanding the nature of language in general.
