The goals of the Department of Modern Languages and Literatures are:
1.   to develop students' ability to understand, speak, read, and write in a second  language effectively;
2.   to provide a better understanding of other cultures and other modes of expression and thought, and hence broaden international understanding in general; and
3. to prepare students for graduate studies and careers in education, international business, communication, government, social services, and related fields.
