Foreign Languages

Students in a French class

Undergraduate Programs

Studying a foreign language is an excellent educational choice in today’s global society, whether you choose our nationally recognized program for Spanish teachers, our bachelor's degree in Spanish, the Spanish honors track, a minor (in German, French, or Spanish), or classes we offer in many other languages such as Korean, Chinese, and Japanese. Foreign language skills are highly marketable in many fields such as education, nursing, business, criminology, tourism, human services, and politics.


Nationally Recognized as Model Program for Spanish Teacher Education

The department is home to the renowned BSEd in Spanish Education K-12 Program, nationally recognized on three consecutive review cycles by its accrediting agencies, the Council for the Accreditation of Educator Preparation (CAEP) (formerly the National Council for Accreditation of Teacher Education, NCATE) and the American Council on the Teaching of Foreign Languages (ACTFL).  Explore the many department-sponsored study abroad options available to you in Spain, France, Germany, Costa Rica, and Mexico.
