The world is becoming smaller — a global village.

As technology brings the world closer together, international communication becomes more important every day. At PC, the French, Spanish, and Modern Foreign Languages majors are designed to prepare students to be active in today’s global village. Through linguistic and intercultural encounter, the department strives to equip its students with the necessary skills and tools to succeed and contribute to our ever-shrinking world.

As part of this encounter, many Modern Foreign Languages majors at PC opt to study abroad for a semester or a year. By immersing themselves in a completely foreign culture, students not only hone their language skills, but they also grow and become more self-aware by moving out of their comfort zones.

Graduates from the PC Department of Modern Foreign Languages have gone on to a variety of fields, including international banking, law, business, journalism, graduate school, and teaching.
