Expand your linguistic and cultural horizons, as well as developing your cognitive skills - study a second (or third, or fourth) language! The Modern Languages Department offers courses in the languages, literatures and cultures of the Pan-Hispanic, French and Francophone, German, Italian and Mandarin Chinese peoples. Students may pursue a major, minor or certificate in Spanish; minors in French and German; and introductory classes in Italian and Mandarin Chinese.
We encourage our students to enrich their study of language and culture by exploring the many multi-disciplinary programs that Parkside offers. Programs in International Studies, Women's and Gender Studies, Humanities, Business Management and Ethnic Studies, to name a few, are easily combined with a major or minor in this department.
As a part of your language program, we also strongly encourage you to participate in one of the many study-abroad and travel-study programs coordinated by the Center for International Studies. Or check it out in person with students who have studied abroad at our twice yearly study-abroad fair.
The learning outcomes of the program are:
