Language Programs

The Department of Romance Languages and Literatures offers language courses in French, Italian, Portuguese, and Spanish at the elementary, intermediate, and advanced levels. There is also a limited Catalan offering. In all four major languages, our courses have substantive content related to all aspects of culture, including literature, enhancing the intellectual experience of learning a language. The high enrollments in French, Italian, Spanish, and Portuguese allow us to provide variety at all levels, so that students can find courses corresponding to their interests. In our fifth language, Catalan, we have a first-year sequence, and students can pursue their Catalan study further through special arrangement.
