Minors in French, German, Russian, Spanish, East Asian Studies, Comparative Literature, Foreign Languages, Linguistics and Translation and Interpreting Studies give students the opportunity to refine language skills, develop linguistic awareness, and acquire knowledge of a foreign culture and/or literature. Skills-development courses, which facilitate speaking, reading, writing, and understanding of a foreign language are offered in these languages. Courses in comparative studies in the humanities relate literatures to the other arts and general currents of culture and humanistic thought, while coursework in linguistics focuses on general concepts of linguistic structure and meaning and relates language development to other areas of human understanding. Courses for the Translation and Interpreting Studies minor give students an opportunity to develop awareness of both the theory and the practice of language mediation in various settings, including healthcare and legal settings. Additional study abroad is strongly encouraged.
