Modern Languages

The Department of Modern Languages, Literatures and Cultures is committed to providing an educational environment which links academic and experiential learning to foster meaningful student engagement with college, community and global affairs. 

Wofford modern language majors and advanced language students will graduate with experience in living and working with people of diverse cultures and socio-economic backgrounds, problem-solving which combines academic knowledge with real world situations community building and participation in college, local, and overseas service activities. We foster such an integrated living and learning environment through physical facilities designed to aid students in working together and with faculty and through curricular as well as co-curricular program offerings. 

All of Wofford’s modern language majors spend a semester studying abroad in an area of the world that speaks the language they are studying. In addition, all modern language majors earn internationally recognized certificates in oral and written language proficiency from the American Council on the Teaching of Foreign Languages, a value-added credential positioning them for the workplace or graduate study.
