Modern Languages

Bachelor of Arts

Through foreign language study, students acquire the vitally important communication skills that are needed in an increasingly interconnected world.  

With courses in French, German, Spanish, and occasionally other languages including Italian, Chinese, and American Sign Language, Winthrop's Department of World Languages and Cultures offers students the opportunity to expand their horizons. Students receive balanced instruction in listening, speaking, reading, and writing skills, in addition to having the chance to study the culture, history, and literature of the countries where the language being studied is spoken.

To learn more about our courses, visit our Course Information page. 

 


Curriculum & Learning Opportunities

The requirement for the B.A. in Modern Languages, with a concentration in French or Spanish, is 36 semester hours above the elementary level. Required courses include classes in composition and conversation, one literature class, and one culture/civilization class. In addition, two courses in another language are required.

Proficiency in language skills must be demonstrated before graduation by completing successfully the ACTFL oral proficiency interview. For details of this requirement, see the statement in the current catalog.

Teacher certification programs are available in French and Spanish. A minor in French, German, or Spanish requires 18 semester hours above the elementary level, six of which must be above the 299-level.

The department encourages majors and minors to include a study abroad experience in their course of studies.  Read about the Global Learning Initiative for sample four-year plans and more information.

The department also sponsors study abroad programs on a rotating basis in countries such as Costa Rica, France, Germany, and Spain. Read more information about department-specific study abroad opportunities.
