Linguistics, the study of language, tries to answer questions such as what all languages have in common, how languages differ from one another, what kind of varieties occur within a single language, how written and spoken forms of language differ, how children acquire language, why languages change and whether differences among groups in society are reflected in their language.
The Modern Languages - French, Mandarin, and Portuguese – are increasingly used to communicate internationally. In our Department, the offerings in these disciplines include language, cultural and literary studies.
