The Department of Modern Languages is for students who are passionate about other cultures and aspire to deepen their knowledge and appreciation of other languages.
Students will develop critical and analytical thinking skills while broadening their vision of the world. Proficiency in languages in addition to English enhances career opportunities.
We offer courses in Arabic, Chinese, French, German, Italian and Spanish. There are a number of elective courses which include languages for special purposes, such as business and health careers, and several cultural English and film courses.
