Return to College of Liberal Arts Return to: College of Liberal Arts

The faculty of the World Languages and Cultures department is committed to providing students with language skills and cultural knowledge for professional and academic careers in the 21st century. We foster and strengthen communication among widely diverse constituencies at home and abroad through outreach programs, sustained partnerships and international study. As language-sensitive and language-functional citizens, we foster respect for others.

The department offers majors, minors, and teacher certification in French Studies, German Studies, and Spanish Studies, plus a major and minor in Anthropology. Latin students may choose a minor in Classical Studies. In addition, the department offers coursework through the advanced level in Japanese and the intermediate level in Arabic and Chinese.

Anthropology

Anthropology examines human diversity in a global context. It is the study and understanding of humans in all places and throughout time, including the effects of culture on individuals and of individuals on their society.  Anthropology offers a perspective for critically analyzing culture and prepared students for multicultural career settings in the United States and abroad. The anthropology program includes coursework from all three major subfields: archeology, physical anthropology, and cultural.
