The study of other languages can be your "passport" to
- an appreciation of other cultures
- critical and analytical thinking
- career enhancement
- a broader vision of the world
- a better understanding of one's own language
The Modern Languages Department offers a variety of courses in Arabic, Chinese, German,
French, Italian and Spanish as well as a number of elective courses which include
languages for special purposes (such as business and health careers) and several culture
courses given in English. There is also a Spanish course for native speakers.
There are four full-time faculty members that include recipients of a Fulbright Scholar Award, the Chancellor's Award for Excellence in Teaching, the Nuala Drescher Award, and several NYS/UUP Excellence Awards.
