Languages Department Offers New Major in Romance Languages

At the last business meeting, the faculty of William Jewell approved the Romance Languages Major proposed by the Department of Languages. The new major will allow students to have an intensive language experience concentrating their studies in French, Spanish and Latin. Students will have to take a variety of advanced courses in French and Spanish as well as study abroad. They will also complete the intermediate course in Latin.
Students graduating in this major will have strong proficiency skills in the two modern languages and reading proficiency in Latin. They will be expected to complete a project in their capstone course integrating studies from both French and Spanish and will be encouraged to address their Latin studies, if appropriate. Students interested in this major will most likely consider graduate studies in languages or comparative literature.
