About Modern Languages

The study of Chinese, French, German, Japanese, or Spanish at Elizabethtown College unites practical training in language skills with an understanding of culture, history, and literature.

Modern Languages

As the world becomes more and more interdependent, in its economics and its politics, the person who is competent in another language and comfortable in another culture is in more demand. The skills you master as you communicate in another language -- capacities for analysis, memory, interpretation, multicultural sensitivity -- transfer readily to any field or occupation. Your proficiency in French, German, Japanese or Spanish will enhance your opportunities for employment in such fields as education, international business, global communications, public relations and corporate media, law enforcement and environmental science.

Our department offers five majors--French, German, Japanese, Spanish, and Spanish Education--as well as elective courses in Chinese.
