Department of Foreign Languages
A working knowledge of a second language is an important means of expanding communication among peoples. It transcends cultural barriers and, in an increasingly interdependent world, can be tantamount to success. Furthermore, second language study allows for greater diversity of thought in all disciplines and can lead to an increased appreciation of one's native tongue.
The Department of Foreign Languages offers a major and minor for the study of Spanish and through a cooperative arrangement with Abilene Christian University and McMurry College, a major and minor for the study of French. The Department of Foreign Languages also offers courses in German and Latin. The department encourages all students to fuse concentrations in other disciplines with second language work.
