The innovative Department of World Languages and Cultures immerses students in a multicultural, student-centered environment.

Wittenberg's world languages program is one of the most distinctive and innovative in the country. In addition to major programs in French, German and Spanish, Wittenberg offers minors in Chinese and Russian and courses in Japanese.

Languages are an integral part of Wittenberg's nationally recognized East Asian Studies Program, the Russian and Central Eurasian Program and the International Studies Program.

Our languages program has received recognition for its unique approach to teaching language across the curriculum. For example, intermediate language courses such as French Film and Culture or Russian Contemporary Issues incorporate more than just the traditional approaches to conversation and composition. Using film, newspaper articles, political speeches and magazine articles as resources, students learn about culture as they study the language, gaining a greater language proficiency and a more profound cultural insight.

To bring a global perspective to important issues and concepts in other disciplines, Wittenberg offers the opportunity to study world language resources in almost every program on campus. Our graduates are better prepared to become global citizens, ready to face the challenges of an ever-expanding global market and community.
