The Department of Languages and Literatures offers a variety of courses in Cherokee, French, German, Portuguese and Spanish. Students can pursue a major or minor in Languages and Literatures with a concentration in French, German or Spanish. The Department provides excellent instruction in the target languages, recognizing that efficient communication requires the appreciation and the understanding of socio-linguistic skills, as well as the learning and acquisition of those languages in meaningful cultural and historical contexts. The integrated curriculum across languages provides our students with opportunities to enhance their political and intercultural awareness through the appreciation and study of varied histories, traditions, and literatures. Students will be provided with tools for critical text analysis to actively and ethically evaluate authentic sources in order to understand how media reflects and influences language and culture. Many departmental courses integrate community-engaged pedagogies, and we constantly review our curriculum so it remains designed in consideration of inclusive pedagogies. We encourage and also design study abroad programs to promote students’ learning outside the classroom.
