Welcome to Foreign Languages!
Modern Languages is a great major to prepare you to work and interact with people cross-culturally and internationally
in business, government, education, and more. In fact, mastery of a non-English language will enhance your work and service opportunities throughout your life in whatever you may pursue. By choosing to major in Modern Languages, you are joining scores of other students who are enhancing their understanding of cultures and peoples, and improving their communication skills in one of the languages that we offer. At Armstrong, we offer our concentration in Spanish; at Statesboro, Arabic, Chinese, French, German, Japanese, Latin, and Spanish concentrations are available. Major concentrations can also be completed Online in French, German, and Spanish.
The Department of Foreign Languages at Georgia Southern provides you the opportunity to become involved in foreign language clubs, to participate in language-related community service, and to choose from an array of study abroad programs. Your professors will involve you in local foreign-language culture excursions, and you will have the opportunity to develop your analytical skills, both verbally and in writing, through faculty-supported creative and research projects. As you excel in your major, you will be invited to join a Foreign Language Honor Society, to participate in an internship, to serve in the department’s tutoring program, or to act as a leader in a variety of foreign-language-related organizations.
The Department of Foreign Languages provides you with an exciting learning environment, with state-of-the-art classrooms, and with thriving undergraduate and graduate academic programs. We hope you will join us!
