Foreign Languages and Literatures Academic Department uri icon

A knowledge of foreign languages is indispensable for leaders, journalists, educators, businessmen, medical professionals, social workers, nearly everyone. Even as the internet makes geographical boundaries and distance almost insignificant, we are becoming ever more aware of our need to understand other cultures deeply if we hope to work with - compete with - or learn from them. In the process of learning to understand other languages and peoples, we come to think in new ways, and we are connected to the world and to history. Our faculty is engaged with the community and its modern problems, and is also proud to offer some of ECU's most intellectually rigorous courses in the humanities.
