The Department of Modern Languages & Cultural Studies plays an integral role in promoting multilingual proficiency and intercultural understanding to prepare students for life and work as professionals in a global environment and as citizens in a multicultural society.
The Department of Modern Languages & Cultural Studies is pleased to welcome Comparative Literature into the Department. We welcome all the students and faculty in Comparative Literature to their new department and we look forward to working together to ensure a smooth transition for everyone. Welcome, Comp Lit!!
Modern Languages & Cultural Studies is home to several of the majors on the list of majors to which admission will be suspended. The Dean of the Faculty of Arts made the decision to suspend admissions into these programs because they have traditionally attracted few majors.
However, in MLCS, we want to assure you that all majors currently enrolled will be able to complete their major, minors in these areas are not impacted, courses are still offered in these areas, and faculty continue to do research and community outreach in all areas of MLCS.
So, if you want to learn Italian, sign up for Italian 111 or 211. If you are interested in Italian Culture, enroll in Italian 205. If you are interested in Ukrainian or Russian (think of those upcoming Olympic Games), sign up for beginning language classes or take one of the courses offered in English on those cultures. Interested in cultivating your inner Viking? Check out our great offerings in Scandinavian Studies. Certain degree title options may be going, but MLCS remains vibrant and growing and we would love to have you check out our great courses and award-winning teachers.
