Minors in the Department of Romance Languages

The Department offers majors and minors in French, Italian, and Spanish. We remind you that you may major or minor in a Romance language, but not both.

When combined with study in another field, knowledge of a Romance language will open doors to a wide variety of career and educational opportunities. Today, learning of other languages, peoples, and cultures is not only useful, it is imperative.
