Foreign Language Courses

In Stevens' foreign language program, students engage with the latest technologies, jump into real-world situations and enjoy a communicative approach, all in the pursuit of learning a new language quickly and enjoyably. 

Not only will Stevens' foreign language courses satisfy general education degree requirements, but the benefits extend beyond the classroom. Foreign language skills can make people more marketable and give them more career choices. Students of language also experience different cultures’ music, food, movies, and much more. Learning a language helps individuals develop better-thinking skills and see the world through more than one lens.
