Modern Languages and Literatures
Gain fluency in world languages, become familiar with other cultures and negotiate cross-cultural concerns while studying modern languages and literatures at NMU, where internationalization is a major initiative. In the process, you’ll also learn to think more quickly and logically, communicate more effectively and sharpen your memory skills. In addition to our French, German Studies and Spanish majors, we offer introductory courses in Chinese, Russian and Arabic.
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.
