The Languages Area introduces students to different world cultures by cultivating their language proficiency in English and either French or Portuguese in personal, academic, and professional settings. With a focus on interpersonal and intercultural communication, our department encourages students to comfortably talk in the target language about their everyday life, as well as cultural and political issues that affect them and the cultures studied.  This enhances our students’ participation in their various communities and their development into citizens of the world.
