World Languages

Languages are at the heart of what makes us human, allowing us to express thoughts and ideas, meet new people, and expand our world. Being multilingual improves attention, creativity, self-control, and organization. Multilingual students are better prepared to succeed in a global economy, connect across cultures, and be the problem-solvers our communities need to meet their greatest civic, social and economic potential. As a result of their study in the World Languages program, students will:

  • Improve their communication skills across all languages;
  • Enhance their cultural understanding of themselves and others;
  • Expand their access to information; and
  • Gain a global perspective.
