Department of Modern Language: Overview
The Department of Modern Language plays a pivotal role in the academic mission of the University and, in particular, of the School of Graduate Studies. We recognize that the world in which we live and work is global, interdependent, dynamic, and pluralistic. We understand that communication involves the cultural, linguistic, and social dimensions of languages. Winner of the Graduate Community of Scholars Award in 2004, the Department of Modern Language is proud of its dedication to language learning and international studies.
The Department is actively engaged in the professional development of language teachers. Master degree programs, with specialization in Italian, Spanish, and Spanish Language and Hispanic Cultures, offer a wide variety of language, culture, and literature courses, which not only provide students with an aesthetic appreciation of the Italian and Spanish cultures but also give them a better understanding of self, of other cultures, and of the complexities of the human nature. The Modern Language Department offers master of science and master of arts degree programs for teachers and other qualified persons wishing to pursue language, culture, and literature work at the graduate level. Offerings are also available to non-degree candidates possessing the prerequisites for any given course.
Students who specialize in Italian or Spanish will develop, with their advisor, a program of study that takes into consideration their educational background and degree of competency in the language.
Students interested in a program leading to certification to teach language in the elementary and secondary schools may consult the Office of the Dean of the School of Education and Professional Studies.
Information about foreign language proficiency tests may be obtained from the Department of Modern Language.
