Modern Languages

Language learning goes far beyond the pleasure of being able to communicate with others using their own words. It also offers a unique insight into a culture, fights insularity and promotes understanding of global perspectives. Achieving this sort of transcultural literacy is an essential component to become the kind of global citizen and global leader the world needs today.

At Eckerd College you can choose from no less than six prominent modern languages that give you the key to six fascinating and influential cultures spreading across several continents. Note, the College’s world language requirement consists of two semesters (or the equivalent) of beginning language study.
