Modern Languages

Other Opportunities

The mission of the Department of Modern Languages is to impart to all W&J students the skills, knowledge, and qualities necessary to communicate and interact in culturally appropriate ways with speakers of languages other than their own. The Department of Modern Languages is, therefore, a key component of a liberal arts education and serves the mission of the College by preparing students to become observant, responsive, and knowledgeable actors in our increasingly multicultural and global society.

All students who take courses in the Department of Modern Languages develop a greater understanding of the world and its peoples. Through the study of languages, literature, and cultures of the world, W&J students will develop the linguistic and cultural competencies necessary to become active and compassionate global citizens.
