Department of Foreign Languages and Literatures
Welcome to the Department of Foreign Languages and Literatures, winner of the Board of Regents 2002 Award for Most Internationalized Academic Unit in the Georgia University System.
The Department of Foreign Languages and Literatures educates students to become better global citizens through instruction in foreign language, literature, film and culture. Through this study, students gain further knowledge of their own language and culture and are able to make informed cultural comparisons.
We offer language, literature, film and culture courses in French, German, and Spanish.
Our aim is to become a top destination for students in the state of Georgia and beyond who are passionate about foreign languages and cultures, and who seek to engage critically with questions of diversity, multiculturalism, and globalization as they manifest themselves in a variety of countries, languages, and cultural artifacts. We endeavor to make contact between and among cultures a daily reality for the general community at the University of West Georgia and to thus enhance multicultural and global awareness and sensitivity.
