Our Mission


The Department of Languages aims to prepare students with the necessary linguistic and cultural knowledge that will enable them to think critically, understand, and appreciate the uniqueness of other language groups. Recognizing that language and culture are inseparable, and in times of growing internationalization, the Department seeks to advance proficiency in languages other than English and cross-cultural competency, making our students more aware, engaged, and prepared global citizens.
