Newport, RI, United States
The Department of Modern and Classical Languages immerses students in the study of a second language and its literatures and cultures in order to achieve proficiency in languages other than English and develop an appreciation of our multicultural world. 


By mastering a second language, our students deepen their understanding of cultural differences and similarities, exercise their responsibilities as citizens of the world and promote meaningful cross-cultural exchange. Courses are taught by skilled, accessible faculty members with experience living and studying in countries around the globe. We strongly encourage participation in study abroad programs, support student internships abroad wherever possible and promote volunteer outreach in the Newport community, where students tutor English as a second language. Whether they pursue graduate programs or enter the workforce in such fields as business, international relations, medicine, law, teaching or government service, our graduates possess the oral and written communication skills needed for success, along with the flexibility to adapt to cultural differences in an ever-changing world.
