The mission of the Department of World Languages, Literatures, and Linguistics is to develop students’ communicative abilities in their chosen language(s) of study and to instill in them an understanding of and appreciation for other cultures through the study of language, linguistics, civilization, literature, and other culture expressions, thereby enlarging their understanding of the human condition within a given context and in the global environment.
“To capitalize on opportunities arising from the growth of our neighbors to
the south, and to further develop its commitment to global engagement, the Eberly College of Arts and Sciences has created a multidisciplinary Latin American Studies (LAS) Program. The program, which was officially approved in February, was in development since 2008. It offers students the opportunity to receive a major or minor in Latin American studies. Ten faculty members from the Eberly College Departments of History, Geology and Geography, Political Science, Sociology and Anthropology, and World Languages, Literatures, and Linguistics worked together to develop the program. . .”
