The Academic Program

The Department of European Languages and Literature (ELL) is divided into five language divisions: Classics, French, German, Russian, and Spanish. Courses of language instruction at the beginning and intermediate levels are offered in Dutch, French, German, Greek, Italian, Latin, Portuguese, Russian and Spanish. Advanced courses in composition, conversation and linguistics are offered in French, German, Russian and Spanish. Courses in the literatures of France, Francophone Africa, Germany, Latin America, Italy, Russia, Spain and Wales are offered regularly in the original language, as are courses in classical literary texts written in Greek and Latin. Cultural studies courses designed to acquaint students from other fields with the traditions and cultures of Europe and the Americas are also available, both in English and in the target language, and advanced courses in specialized topics have been designed for students at the graduate level. Such courses include Hispanic cultural studies; U.S. Latino literature and culture; French and German film; French, German, Spanish and Latin American civilization; Russian arts and culture; classical foundations; Europeans in the Pacific; literary theory; opera; exile literature; and courses on specific authors and literary movements. At the graduate level, particular attention is paid to literary analysis and cultural history. MA programs are offered in Classics, French, German and Spanish. In addition, BA degrees and certificate programs are offered in Classics, French, German, Russian, and Spanish. The department promotes language proficiency and cultural awareness through its sponsorship of student clubs, films, lectures, scholarships, and Study Abroad programs. Currently the department, through the Study Abroad Center, sponsors programs in Mendoza, Argentina; Angers, Annecy and Paris, France; Florence, Italy; Berlin, Germany; Vladivostok, Russia; and Seville, Spain.
