Texas Tech University

Mission

The Department of Classical & Modern Languages & Literatures is dedicated to engaging in research that enriches the humanities, second language studies, and our communities - locally and globally. Our classrooms (online & face-to-face) are a place of connection, where faculty personally invest in students' growth. We equip our students to be competitive in the next stage of their career through high-impact education in language and culture. Throughout our campus and community, we foster linguistic and cultural diversity and advocate for multiculturalism.

Vision

The Department of Classical & Modern Languages & Literatures will promote transdisciplinary cultural and literary studies and second language research. Our faculty and staff will engage in ongoing skill development to train diverse populations of students. We will cultivate a spirit of open dialogue and mentorship that unites faculty, staff, and students. We will set ourselves apart in the provision of experiential learning through accessible study abroad programs and local hands-on learning opportunities. We will build research and teaching partnerships with regional K-12 schools to serve local needs. Our department will lead efforts to recruit, retain, and advocate for Hispanic students to serve the university's mission as a Hispanic-Serving Institution. We will promote interculturality through collaborative partnerships across the university and throughout the community.
