Who we are

The department of Languages, Cultures and Communication houses TWO vibrant programs: the Modern Languages Program and the Communication Studies Program.

The Modern Languages Program is aimed at acquisition of additional languages, and enhanced learning through literary and cultural studies as well as technology. The program offers undergraduate majors and minors in Spanish, French, German and Portuguese. To complement and enhance the academic experience, the Program strongly encourages students to participate in a study abroad program, several of which are offered every year. Our experienced faculty provide engaging classroom instruction from beginning level through the advanced. The Program also offers a graduate degree (M.A.) in Hispanic Studies. The Communication Studies Discipline studies all forms, modes, media and consequences of communication through various forms of inquiry. The Communication Studies Program engages students in the understanding, promotion and widespread appreciation of the importance of communication in public and private life, the application of competent communication to improve the quality of life and relationships, and the use of knowledge about communication to solve problems. Our faculty are dedicated to fostering and promoting free and ethical communication amongst all students in order to facilitate qualities required to become effective communicators and leaders in their chosen fields/professions after graduation. The Program offers undergraduate majors and minors (B.A/B.S.) in four areas of concentration - organizational, media studies, public and interpersonal.
