Community engaged programs are an effective way to gain language proficiency and learn about culture. The community-engaged programs in our department are hands-on, interactive, collaborative, and are fully focused on the Pittsburgh community in order to present the practical reality of learning a foreign language. In these flexible programs, students and professors are committed to engage weekly with the foreign language community. Community-engaged programs are an integral part of community-engaged courses. These are available at the upper level of Spanish and French, and they are all designed to help you gain a better understanding of the foreign language culture, language and society.
