Foreign Language Programs at Utica College



Utica College offers a comprehensive program in the study of foreign languages, literature and cultures. We teach courses in the original language and in translation. Students interested in the Foreign Languages Major can develop a Concentration with a faculty member from the discipline in which they will concentrate. Logical combinations would include, but are not limited to:

 

  • A second Foreign Language,
  • International Studies,
  • Human Rights Advocacy,
  • Journalism,
  • Public Relations.


The Foreign Languages Program seeks to help students gain fluency in reading, writing, and speaking the foreign languages they study and to gain knowledge of their literatures and cultures. Students will learn to make connections between their chosen discipline and other disciplines within the liberal arts tradition and in the world beyond the College, including professional aspirations. They also help students to acquire a deep and compassionate understanding of peoples and their culture. The Foreign Languages Major has been approved and students can select this major in Fall 2007. For more information on the Foreign Languages Minor and Major, see Programs and Courses.

Students may take advantage of the Mohawk Valley College Consortium agreement, wherein they may take one course per semester at SUNY Institute of Technology, Herkimer County Community College, Mohawk Valley Community College, SUNY Morrisville, SUNY Empire State College, and Hamilton College.
