About the Department of Languages
Language is key to increasing one's understanding of today's world. The internationalization of travel, the arts, media, politics, science and technology, and the economic interdependence of the world's nations have caused a demand for the multilingual professional. This increasingly multinational character of American society itself demonstrates the importance of foreign languages in nearly every occupation.
The L2 requirement for all Bachelor of Arts programs reflects the importance that UD places on intercultural education for students in the 21st century and prepares our graduates for global citizenship.
