Lingua Franca

The Department of Languages, Literatures, and Linguistics (LLL) offers studies in foreign languages, linguistics, and TESL, as well as language teaching.  Our graduates use their language skills both professionally and in the classroom, and many have chosen to pair an LLL major or minor with another degree program.  

We have dedicated language programs in Spanish, French, German, and Latin, and also are currently offering courses in Japanese and Korean.
