The Department of World Languages & Cultures at NC State provides students with a broad and intimate understanding of the rich and varied cultures of our globe-understanding that is built on solid competence of spoken and written skills in the language(s) you choose.

At the undergraduate level, the Department offers students the opportunity to major in the following concentrations leading to the B.A. degree: Arabic, Asian Languages (Chinese, Japanese & Hindi/Urdu), French, German Studies, and Spanish. Students who are eager to make teaching their career can pursue the B.A. Degree in French, German, Spanish or Chinese Education. We also offer minors in the following: Arabic (through Middle Eastern Studies), Chinese, Classics (Greek and Latin), French, German Studies, Hindi/Urdu, Italian, Japanese, Portuguese, Russian, Spanish and World Literacy. In addition, we teach classes in Persian and English as a Second Language.

At the graduate level, we have an M.A. program in World Languages & Cultures with three separate concentrations: French and Spanish, both incorporating literature, linguistics, and culture courses. We also have an M.A. concentration in TESOL.

To provide students with more possibilities for languages or levels that may not be taught at NC State, we have developed an inter-institutional collaboration with other schools in the UNC System through a system-wide Language Exchange, so that we may provide greater language opportunities for our students.
