Welcome to the Department of Modern Languages, Literatures, and Cultures at Quinnipiac University! We are a vibrant community of teacher-scholars representing a variety of backgrounds and interdisciplinary approaches to the study of national languages, literatures, and their related fields.

Committed to educating the global citizens of tomorrow, the department offers coursework in Arabic, Chinese, French, German, Hebrew, Italian, Japanese, and Spanish, and frames the study of these languages within that of the literary and cultural values, as well as the histories, of those who speak them.

As students acquire a knowledge and understanding of a language and culture, they develop critical skills to evaluate and analyze texts from both past and present, from the literary to hyper-contemporary media, within their social, political and historical contexts. Integrating these studies into a liberal arts CAS education, students develop a broader appreciation for not only global cultures, but also a deeper understanding of our own culture in its complexity and diversity.

Employers in today’s global market value this ability to identify and analyze media from a variety of perspectives, and speakers of languages other than English will have a competitive edge in the 21st-century workplace for their linguistic, analytical and intercultural competencies.
