The Department of Society, Culture and Languages recognizes the value of an international perspective informed by the study of foreign languages. As such, we offer instruction in Spanish, French, and Arabic.
Because we want the learning that occurs in our classrooms to be as useful as possible to your experiences in the real world, we complement the traditional instruction you receive in each language with cultural exploration of the language. We also work with the Global Education Program to offer opportunities to visit the countries where the languages are spoken.
You study the language of fashion, fine food, great literature, extraordinary art and love.
You study the second most commonly spoken language in the U.S., and one that dovetails nicely with UNE’s Latin American Studies minor.
You study a language of critical importance to the U.S. State Department, as well as to many other governmental agencies, NGOs, and corporations.
