Global Studies & World Languages
The Language & Literature Department has a new Global Studies/World Languages major that is interdisciplinary, offering students a wide range of courses reflecting diversity, world languages and cultures, and perspectives beyond borders. The program is designed for students who aspire to work in an increasingly global culture and economy. It prepares students for transfer to four-year institutions and for careers with an international or global component in government, business and marketing, the non-profit sector, education, or law and social work.
As part of the major, students will need 12 credits in one World Language. Students can choose from seven different languages. Additionally as part of the World Languages offerings, American Sign Language and International Cultures courses are also available.
