Department of Foreign Languages

The Bachelor of Arts in Modern Language & Culture: Cross-disciplinary Perspectives

This concentration allows degree candidates to complement their studies in the primary language with courses that situate their language and culture studies within the context of related disciplines. The curriculum in Concentration IV allows the students to survey the range of academic disciplines that explore cross-cultural experiences in a multicultural world. By exploring a variety of disciplinary perspectives, students enhance and deepen their knowledge and understanding of their primary language and culture. Concentration IV prepares candidates for advanced academic degrees, and for employment in agencies and businesses with international ties or local companies that require foreign language competence.
