Modern Languages | St. Lawrence University


In today’s world, you’ll enrich your job options if you have a working knowledge of one or more foreign languages and the rich cultures they represent. At St. Lawrence, students can study languages that are spoken on every continent: French, Spanish, German, Italian, Chinese, Arabic and Swahili. They can minor in most of them and major in the first two of those, or in our multi-language option, which allows to focus on three languages. All the languages offered in the Modern Languages and Literatures department are key components of some of St. Lawrence’s nearly two dozen international study programs.

Laurentians who have studied a foreign language - or more than one - are well positioned to excel in international business, diplomacy, development, and education.
