Where Dreams Begin. . .

Thank you for visiting our website.  This is a place where dreams begin, a place where you can begin to build a future, to make the most of your life.  Whatever your career choice, when you study a language, you just don’t take classes.   You become connected to a local and international network, with opportunities for overseas study and experience.  What about a career?  Course work in languages and culture complement careers in education, business, engineering, science and medicine, or government service to name a few. 

Whether you’re just curious about other languages and cultures, or desire to acquire skills for working in a global society, we’re ready to help.  With award-winning faculty and thoughtful advising, we’re ready to assist you with meaningful decisions.  You’ll receive lots of attention, and perhaps most of all, our support and commitment to help make your dreams come true, right on to graduation.  Please take some time to view our site and the opportunities that await you.
