The International Languages and Cultures Program educates students to become better global citizens through instruction in international 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 international 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.
