Modern Foreign Languages and Literatures

CHAIR: Blanca Anderson, Ph.D., Office: 337 Bobet Hall
WEB PAGE: cas.loyno.edu/mfllits/

The Department of Modern Foreign Languages and Literatures offers degree programs in French, German, Spanish, and Japanese studies and a cooperative degree program with Tulane University in Russian. These programs are designed to train students not only in the target language but also in the culture of those countries where the language is spoken. Our department also participates in a minor program in Latin American studies.

The minimum requirements for the degree programs are as follows:

  1. Thirty-seven hours of coursework in the target language, including a one-hour capstone course, of which an absolute minimum of 24 hours must be at the 300 — 400 level. However, regardless of placement, students must complete a minimum of 31 hours in the major language.

  2. Students are encouraged to complement their language study with courses in areas such as history and culture of the countries where the target language is spoken, world literature not of the target language, linguistics, international economics and political relations, and language teaching methodology.

  3. Majors must complete coursework in an adjunct language up to at least one course at the 200 level. If the student places higher than 200, one course will be required. This requirement is waived for students who have two majors.

  4. All graduating majors are required to take an oral proficiency interview in their final semester.
