Modern Languages


The Department of Modern Languages is home to majors in French and Spanish, including a teacher education track, as well as German and Arabic programs. NDSU's full, year-round English-as-a-Second-Language program is also part of Modern Languages.  We invite your inquires; please contact us (701.231.7887) if you would like to arrange for an appointment and tour.

While the primary goal for all courses in Modern Languages is a high level of proficiency in the language, there is also a strong emphasis on  history, culture, and contemporary issues. We encourage language majors to take advantage of course offerings in areas such as history, anthropology, sociology, political science, international studies, linguistics, and the fine arts which will strengthen their trans-cultural competence through a broad understanding of countries and peoples.  The teacher education track available to students majoring in French or Spanish is designed to provide prospective teachers with a strong academic foundation and the instructional skills necessary to become effective, inquiring, and adaptable teachers.  Study abroad is required of majors in French and Spanish.
