Program-Level Outcomes

Department of Languages and Cultures Mission Statement

Through all its programs, the Department of Languages and Cultures seeks to facilitate the development of intercultural communicative competency among its students so they can lead ethically in the globalized world. Students with intercultural communicative competency can:

  • comprehend and interpret the cultural contexts in which they find themselves,
  • communicate appropriately within those contexts,
  • act as mediators between cultures, and
  • reflect critically on their own cultures.

Learning Outcomes

The Department of Languages and Cultures has five main student learning outcomes, all of which contribute to the development of intercultural and communicative competence. These five areas are taken directly from the ACTFL world-readiness standards for learning languages and are the widely accepted outcomes for world language programs.

See our program offerings for more information about how you can develop intercultural communicative competence in French, German, Latin, and Spanish.
