Giving Day:  Today is Giving Day! Make a gift, spread the word, and show you're Proud to be Beloit!

Welcome to Beloit College's Department of Modern Languages and Literatures. If you are looking to become internationally minded, the study of foreign languages and cultures is a great start. 

Mission Statement

The department prepares its students to thrive in a diverse world through the interdisciplinary study of one or more languages (Chinese, French, German, Japanese, Russian, and Spanish) and the cultural, social, philosophical, and/or historical contexts in which these languages are situated. By acquiring the four basic linguistic skills—listening, speaking, reading, and writing, students develop intercultural competency through thoughtful engagement with literary and other cultural texts. The department encourages its students to put their language learning and cultural understanding into practice locally, in the work place, and while studying abroad, where students volunteer, complete internships, and/or pursue independent research projects through its unique Cities in Transition courses.
