Welcome to the Department of Languages, Literatures and Cultures!
We are delighted to gather with our DLLC community once again – albeit remotely – for a new academic year. The challenges of 2020 are unique, but we remain more committed than ever to fostering connection across languages, literatures, and cultures, and helping our students become global citizens – even over Zoom!
DLLC offers undergraduate programs in eleven language areas, as well as interdisciplinary and professional opportunities (including in health care, fashion, and finance) and graduate programs in Italian, French, Spanish, and Education. With our wide variety of courses, DLLC students have the opportunity not only to acquire proficiency in a second (or third, or fourth!) language, but to explore a wealth of topics in literature, film, history, and culture, and engage in unique study abroad and service-learning projects all over the world. Linguistic proficiency and cultural competency are crucial to promoting dialogue, empathy, and diversity, and engaging with key issues in our world today. We're proud of the work our students and faculty do each day to achieve these goals! The DLLC experience is enriched by exceptional cultural programming, and students can deepen their studies through events such as guest speakers, films, language conversation tables, and more.
DLLC is a welcoming and inclusive space that embraces all in our community, regardless of race, gender, sexuality, and religious and cultural affiliation. In our curriculum, programming, and communications we are committed to fostering diversity, equity, and inclusion, to valuing and respecting difference, and to prioritizing a learning environment that allows us to engage meaningfully with diverse ideas, perspectives, cultures, and experiences.
