The World Languages Department emphasizes the need for students to be linguistically and culturally equipped to successfully interact, at home and abroad as citizens in the global community. World language study enhances the understanding of different cultures, ways of life, and of the varied products, practices and values of the world in which we live. It promotes communication, bringing about appreciation of cultural differences through comparisons and helping us to make connections to other disciplines and communities. World language study encourages the exchange of ideas in all aspects of our growing multicultural lives and the communication skills gained enable students to successfully interact in any environment. The department actively supports the vision that all students will develop and maintain proficiency in more than one language.
