The department provides diverse offerings in languages, literatures and cultures, with majors and minors in French, German, Spanish, and Multi Language. In learning an additional language, you will not only deepen your understanding of your own culture and language, but also gain a greater appreciation of other cultures.
All of Elmhurst's world language faculty members have spent extended periods of time living in the country whose language they teach. In small classes, you'll interact closely with your professors. Students communicate in the language at hand — even in beginning courses. You'll also develop your language skills in small group and partner exercises. There is no better way to learn a second language than being in a foreign country. That's why Elmhurst provides plenty of opportunities to travel — including internships in Costa Rica, Brussels, Paris, Madrid or Bonn; faculty-led study tours; and a variety of study abroad programs.
The World Languages, Literatures, and Cultures Department is located on the third floor of Daniels Hall.
