About the major

Students who major in Romance languages intensively study two Romance languages (French, Italian, Portuguese, or Spanish). Advanced knowledge of two languages opens up a world of travel, study, and job opportunities.

Our students explore not only the languages but also the literature and cultures of the modern and historical Romance world. Courses in the program focus on prose, poetry, theater, and film, as well as history and language. Romance languages students are encouraged to travel and study abroad.
