The Modern Languages and Literatures Department houses five programs—Chinese, French, German, Russian, and Spanish. Our programs help students develop linguistic skills and cultural enrichment through an emphasis on understanding, speaking, reading, and writing.

If you’re interested in majoring or minoring in a language you can take a variety of courses to follow your passions. The course sequence even offers amble time to double major.

Either way, as an Anselmian majoring in a modern language, you’ll be enriched by another culture and find a direction that plays to your strengths.

Taking their experiences out of the classroom, our students take advantage of study abroad programs around the world from Paris, France and Granada Spain to Buenos Aires, Argentina and Chiang Mai, Thailand.

With a background in a foreign language and a foundation in the liberal arts, alumni find jobs working in schools, banks, government agencies, hospitals, and non-profit organizations.
