The Department of Modern Languages and Literatures at Duquesne University provides students with a global education and prepares graduates for productive roles in our rapidly changing world. Courses are offered in Arabic, Chinese, French, German, Italian, Japanese and Spanish, as well as international cinema. In small classes with individualized attention, students learn to use language wisely and judiciously as a tool in their interaction with others and to respect the dignity of all women and men. In this way, the programs contribute to building moral character through facilitating encounters with different cultures, traditions, values, virtues and norms.
The Department offers study-abroad opportunities through residence programs in Rome, Italy, and Salamanca, Spain.
