Languages, Literatures and International Studies
As a welcoming community of international scholars, we provide a crucial component of NMU's undergraduate curriculum. Our courses and programs challenge students to cultivate global competencies in languages, literatures and cultures. The knowledge and skills students gain with us prepare them for a variety of professions, and are complementary and invaluable to fields and careers students pursue across campus and around the world.
For beginners, a sequence of four courses gets students swiftly to the point where they can study abroad and be immersed in their language. Students are encouraged to study abroad for at least one semester in any of our programs in more than 30 countries. Advanced students will delve deeper into the subtleties of language. Students seeking teacher certification also take education classes, have field experiences and a semester of student teaching. Interactive teaching and learning take students far beyond books and classrooms.
Knowing a language opens exciting career opportunities. Our graduates are employed in government positions and non-government organizations; education; finance and marketing firms; international business consulting; travel and tourism; public relations; publishing; and many other fields.
