Our courses provide you with a variety of options for exploring and developing expertise in the languages and literatures of many cultures around the world. Faculty bring their areas of specialization and particular interests to create a focused classroom experience on topics that range from Renaissance poetry to hip-hop lyrics to literary theory to contemporary film, and the list goes on. Our relatively small classes afford you a great deal of personalized attention and guarantee one-on-one interaction with your peers and your professor. Our graduate students are also invited to explore our courses in less-commonly taught languages.
