Languages and Intercultural Studies
Bachelor of Arts
Students majoring in languages and intercultural studies (LIS) choose one of two concentrations: Hispanic Studies or Multiple Languages. The Multiple Language concentration allows students to combine the study of any of the seven languages offered in the department (Arabic, Chinese, French, Spanish, Italian, Russian, and German) while emphasizing one language of their choice. In addition, students can minor in French, German, Languages and Intercultural Studies, Spanish for Health Professions, or Spanish. Each of these concentrations provides students with a critical awareness of the cultures associated with those languages, proficiency in the languages studied, and oral and written skills for communicating in a variety of contexts, including working with multinational businesses and agencies.
