Language Programs

The Department of Romance Languages and Literatures offers language courses in French, Italian, Portuguese, and Spanish at the beginning, 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. In our fifth language, Catalan, we have a first-year sequence, and students can pursue their Catalan study further through special arrangement.
