Romance Languages Minor

The minor in Romance languages offers students the opportunity to incorporate knowledge of Italian, Spanish and French languages and culture into their program of study. In our increasingly global world, this may be particularly valuable. Students will achieve a proficiency in one of the languages, and become acquainted with a second language. Students will also be exposed to literary, historical and artistic developments of the relative countries.
