The study of language acquaints students with cultures other than their own, deepens their understanding of their own culture, and prepares them for graduate study and many internationally- based careers. Majors and minors are available in French, German and Spanish, with the additional options of a minor in Classical Studies, a teacher certification, or a concentration in Language and International Trade. Japanese and Latin instruction is offered through the 200 level. Students may qualify for a higher level language course through USI placement examinations
