Why Study Classical & Modern Languages & Literatures?

The world today is rapidly changing, and globalization is increasingly becoming a reality for this generation.  The benefits of knowing another language range from practical communication in other cultures to increased employment opportunities to personal enrichment.  It is estimated that around 12% of the population in America speaks Spanish as their first language, and many experts predict that the number will continue to climb.  In Texas, about 35% speak Spanish in the home as their first language.  The Department of Classical & Modern Languages & Literatures offers courses in 16 languages and undergraduate minors in American Sign Language, Arabic, Chinese, Classics, French, German, Greek, Italian, Japanese, Latin, Latin American and Iberian Studies, Portuguese, Russian, Spanish, and Turkish. Whether you want to translate documents, teach a foreign language, or learn more about a culture or language, CMLL is the place for you.
