In the tradition of the Jesuit educational mission, the Department of Modern Languages and Literatures prepares students to live in and contribute to a diverse and changing world through the study of languages, literatures and cultures. The Department develops the students’ ability to understand and communicate in the language at every level in culturally appropriate ways. Furthermore, the Department strives to free students from parochial thinking so they can genuinely appreciate the value of difference.
