The Department of Languages and Literatures provides a diverse curriculum in languages, literatures, cultures, and creative expression. Students gain a foundation in oral and written communication and the critical thinking skills necessary to explore fundamental questions of the humanities, liberal arts, and the Catholic Intellectual Tradition.
Many Department of Languages and Literatures’ students participate in one or more of the Study Abroad opportunities available through out Office of Global Affairs. Literature, language, writing, and other major-related courses are offered on our SHU-directed campuses in Ireland and Luxembourg. Many other courses are offered at partner institutions around the world. We encourage our majors to experience the benefits of spending part of their undergraduate years abroad and actively work to ensure that credits earned will be transferred back to the individual’s program here. Further information about current courses abroad and details about applying can be found on the Study Abroad website.
