World Languages Minor Requirements

The study of a world language is a unique educational experience. Since every human being uses language to communicate, and since language is a fundamental means of expression and intercultural communication, it is by means of this basic skill that students can participate in the life of another people and share their culture, their traditions, and their literature, oral or written. Through the study of a world language, students also come to learn their own language better.

The ICS and World Languages Department offers instruction in the following languages: American Sign Language, Chinese, French, Japanese,  and Spanish. Study of a pacific island language is provided by the Jonathan Napela Center for Pacific Island Studies
Note: The Hawaiian language is offered under the Hawaiian Studies program.
