Faculty help support student-run clubs for several of the languages/cultures in the department. Above, the kick-off to a Chinese Club event.

LCL offers a world of possibilities to the student who wishes to explore languages, literatures, and cultures. With over 15 majors, minors, and languages available, every student interested in pursuing careers in business, government, teaching or travel will find a home in LCL.

While many of the programs in LCL emphasize the development of language proficiency in a communicative and cultural context, students who wish to gain a broader appreciation of culture and literature will find other fields of study in LCL attractive. The program in Comparative Literature & Cultural Studies provides students with an interdisciplinary approach to literature and culture, utilizing critical tools and theories from diverse perspectives.
