About

The Department of World Languages and Literatures at the University of Memphis offers instruction in the following languages:  Arabic, Chinese, French, German, Italian, Japanese, Korean, Latin, Portuguese, Russian, and Spanish.  The Department has thirty faculty members actively engaged in research, instruction, and service.

Overview

The University of Memphis offers a bachelor's degree in World Languages and Literatures, with single-language concentrations in Chinese, French, German, Italian, Japanese, and Spanish; more limited programs are offered in Arabic, Korean, Latin, Portuguese, and Russian.  

Key Features 

  • The study of a world language is central to the international mission of the University, since it offers the student a deeper appreciation of a different culture.  
  • As the United States continues to increase its involvement in foreign trade, tourism, and international cooperative ventures, an awareness and an understanding of the culture and civilization of those countries become indispensable for the enlightened and literate individual.

Programme Structure

  • In addition to the basic language courses at the lower level, the Department also serves the wider, humanistic goals of the University as a whole by providing courses in advanced language, literature, linguistics, culture, and civilization.  
  • These courses provide one of the bases for a liberal education by broadening the intellectual and cultural horizons of the student and by introducing him or her to a more profound perception of what is meant by the term "humanity":  world language courses accomplish this by illustrating the different ways that human beings of different nationalities look at and react to reality.
