Jastak-Burgess Hall home of the Department of Languages, Literatures and Cultures
Welcome to the Department of Languages, Literatures & Cultures where We Speak Your Language!
DLLC is widely revered as the University of Delaware's central hub for teaching and research of cultures in and through their native languages. DLLC is at the heart of UD's internationalization efforts, and the department is dedicated to developing culturally informed global leaders. We want you to become part of our community! If you are interested in studying a language or culture, participating in our transformative study abroad programs, undertaking international internships and community-based learning projects or collaborating with faculty on research and teaching opportunities, we invite you to become part of DLLC. We are connecting the world!
DLLC offers programs at the undergraduate and graduate level and boasts some of the world's most highly qualified global teachers and scholars. In addition to instruction in 14 languages, the department offers coursework in global and area studies, language education, languages for specific purposes (including healthcare, engineering, fashion and finance, among others) and comparative literature. Our exciting groundbreaking program in game studies and esports attracts students from across the nation. Beyond these stimulating programs, we engage and support our community by organizing or sponsoring a wide array of cultural programs, from film series to public lectures to visiting scholars.
The department is also one of the largest sponsors of study abroad programs and international exchange opportunities, and more UD students study abroad with us than any other unit on campus. Our faculty-led and exchange programs offer exceptional opportunities for students to gain meaningful global experience while setting out to become bilingual and bicultural. In fact, did you know that the world's very first study abroad program was established by our department? 2023 marks 100 years since a faculty-led program was established in Paris, and we will be celebrating this amazing moment all year long during our Centennial Celebration. Be on the lookout for events, speakers and opportunities that demonstrate DLLC's global impact at UD!
We invite you to learn more about our programs and our mission. If you are anywhere near Jastak-Burgess Hall, stop in! We welcome the opportunity to meet you and talk about the exciting opportunities in the Department of Languages, Literatures, and Cultures! After all, We Speak Your Language!
