Modern Languages

Explore language, culture and literature courses designed to enhance language acquisition and foster an understanding of diverse peoples and cultures.

In an increasingly globalized society, there are clear practical benefits to speaking more than one language. Bilingualism has become essential to those engaging in areas of science, technology, business and politics. And beyond just words and syntax, learning another language allows students to gain a deeper understanding of cultural ideas and traditions, and opens doors to career opportunities in a variety of different fields. The Department seeks to better prepare Emmanuel students to succeed in an interconnected world.

While Emmanuel is located in the heart of one of the most vibrant cultural centers in the U.S., there are even more opportunities to learn beyond the classroom. These include faculty-led study abroad courses in locations such as Paris, Milan and Oviedo, among others.
