Modern Languages and Literatures

Modern Languages and Literatures

The Department of Modern Languages and Literatures at Duquesne University provides students with a global, interdisciplinary education and prepares graduates for productive roles in our rapidly changing world. A variety of courses covering languages, literatures, and cultures, are offered in French, German, Italian, Japanese, and Spanish.

In small classes with individualized attention, students learn to respect the diversity of cultural backgrounds and the dignity of all women and men. Some programs include a community engagement approach to learning, providing students with the opportunity to work and interact with diverse populations. In these ways, the curriculum and programs of the Department contribute to building moral character through facilitating encounters with different cultures, traditions, values, virtues, and norms.
The Department offers study abroad opportunities through residence programs in Rome, Italy; Salamanca, Spain; and San Juan, Costa Rica.

A Note of Gratitude

The Department wishes to express thanks for the generous support of the 2020 Duquesne University Human Rights Film Series. The event was made possible through funding from the Dean's Office of the McAnulty College and Graduate School of Liberal Arts and an award from the Office of the Provost and Vice President of Academic Affairs.
