Immerse Yourself

World Languages (Spanish, French, German)

Major • Minor

Extend your reach.

It’s a winning formula. Prepare for your larger world in extremely small classes. As a world languages major, you’ll have your professors’ full attention, close mentorship and expert career advice from day one.

Yes, you’ll learn to read, write, think, dream and solve the world’s great problems in another language. But as you explore your field (on our campus, in the Rome community and across the globe) you’ll also be developing critical thinking and communication skills and sharpening your analytical chops. You’ll become more open minded, intellectually agile, culturally aware and personally adaptive (habits of mind that play well in any corner of the world).

Hands On

Gain professional teaching and leadership experience by working with Rome’s local immigrant community through an on-campus ESL program. Collect a paycheck while working for (and with) your professors on research, tutoring and grading.
