Congratulations to Our Outstanding 2012 Graduates!
We offer majors and minors in Spanish, French, Asian Languages, Russian Area Studies (self-designed major), and language courses in German. Through our programs, we prepare students to participate in an international society and gain broader cultural perspectives.
Our students develop linguistic and cultural competencies that are vital to their personal and professional fulfillment.
Through the serious study of the target language, students develop an appreciation for the breadth of cultural expression in literature, history, fine arts, philosophy, cinema, and contemporary business and social practices. They also gain a deeper appreciation of their own language and culture.
By providing opportunities to travel and attend courses abroad, the department enables cultural immersion and learning experiences that are valuable for academic and professional life.
“Since Pacific isn't a huge school, I know all of my professors. In my French class this semester, there are only ten of us, so everyone gets a chance to participate and know the professor. My experience at Pacific has been great!”
