Jastak-Burgess Hall home of the Department of Languages, Literatures and Cultures
Welcome to the Department of Languages, Literatures and Cultures!
We are delighted to welcome our DLLC community back for a new academic year. The DLLC is committed to building connection across languages, literatures, and cultures; fostering communication and dialogue; and helping students become global citizens – whether here on campus, on one of our numerous study abroad programs across the globe, or over Zoom!
DLLC offers undergraduate programs in twelve language areas, as well as many 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.
To learn more about our academic programs, students, faculty, or special events, please explore our website! Again, benvenuti – welcome – and don't hesitate to contact me if I can be of assistance in your academic journey.
