Undergraduate Programs

Students at the Worcester Historical Museum

Study one or more languages while learning about culture, identity, and literature.

Mastering a language includes speaking and writing proficiency, but also increasing your appreciation and critical analysis of the cultures that share that language.

We offer language courses in American Sign Language (ASL), Chinese, French, German, Greek (through directed study), Hebrew, Japanese, Latin, and Spanish.
