Modern Language majors at SBU know and love the challenge and rewards of being able to communicate in another language.
The personal and professional benefits of such study are life-long and life changing.
The Modern Language Department seeks intellectually curious and motivated students who are interested in the study of other cultures. Most students will be eager to participate in study abroad programs to enhance their command of the language and their understanding of the target culture.
Majors in Modern Language should be willing to strive for excellence in the overall curriculum as well as in the major program.
