Program of Studies in Foreign Languages and Cultures

The introductory 100-level courses introduce the student to the role of language in general, while giving valuable insights into the function of English, developing basic communication skills in the target language, as well as an appreciation of the history and cultures studied.

The intermediate 200-level courses continue the emphasis on developing all four skills through guided readings in literature, culture, conversation, and composition courses dealing with contemporary issues and their critical analysis, employing video, audio, satellite and computer-assisted instruction outside the classroom.

The advanced 300- and 400-level courses refine the four skill areas while placing special emphasis on the study of civilizations in their historical, political, literary, and contemporary context. Students become thoroughly familiar with critical analysis and cultural values through systematic survey
