As the world continues to get smaller, the value of being bilingual grows. Language nurtures personal relationships, unlocks professional opportunities and invites new experiences around the world.

The Department of Modern and Classical Languages (MCL) emphasizes the use of language as a critical tool to help broaden student’s awareness of the similarities and differences between cultures while sharpening their appreciation for the nuances of their own native language.

Fourteen languages from around the world are offered to satisfy USF’s language requirement. MCL’s Language and Culture Center (LCC) and tutoring programs offer students the extra academic support they need outside of the classroom. And our Center for Global Education opportunities give students the chance to test their skills overseas.
