World Languages

Department of Languages, Literature, and Communication

If you love languages and cultures and wish to attain proficiency in three languages beyond English, you’ll fit in perfectly with the World Languages students at Grace College. This program will give you competency in multiple languages, increase your personal interactions with numerous communities, and lead to a wide array of careers and possibilities.
In on-campus courses focusing on acquiring linguistic and cultural skills, students develop their speaking, listening, reading, and writing skills, as well as cultural awareness. The required Study Abroad program in two other cultures, such as Argentina, France, Germany, Spain, China, or the Middle East, gives you the opportunity to solidify your language skills and to discover other civilizations first-hand. You will also develop a dynamic Christian worldview as you encounter differing cultural values and beliefs during your study abroad experience, and learn to live as a global citizen.
