About the Department
Our programs are designed to make students competent in language and culture, and the courses we offer merge the study of language with the study of literature, popular culture, film, arts, music, politics, and media.
The Department of Romance Languages and Literatures offers broad and focused instruction in writing, critical thinking, and research, and helps you develop an understanding and appreciation for cultures outside the U.S. These skills are valuable for careers in a wide range of businesses, government, and not-for-profit jobs.
