Language (LAN)
This program allows students to acquire proficiency in languages other than English.  The study of language is traditional in a liberal arts education, as it builds vocabulary, improves understanding of grammar, and exposes students to other ways of living and thinking.  A minor in language is recommended for students intending to teach or go to graduate school.

Minor
For a minor in foreign language, a student needs to complete at least 18 hours of courses (20 hours for a Spanish minor) selected in consultation with the department.  A student may concentrate in German, Spanish, Italian or language in general.  Courses in other languages, such as Greek, Japanese and Latin, may be offered on request, depending on students’ interest and instructors’ availability.
