Foreign Language & Literature Department
Students choosing to major or minor in foreign languages will have the oppurtunity to study with nationally and internationally recognized professors. They will benefit from small classes, individual attention and dedicated teachers. The department maintains a rigorous curriculum but helps each student along the way. We live in a global society and must learn the culture and language of other nations in order to promote mutual understanding and peace. Chestnut Hill College also offers foreign language clases in Chinese, German, Italian, and Russian.
At Chestnut Hill College, students will be immersed in culture, language and literature of many French-speaking countries. Through the experiences learned abroad in France or another Francophone country, students will develop an appreciation for foreign culture, literature, art and history./node/92
The Spanish major offers opportunities to develop an appreciation and understanding of the literature and culture of Spain and Latin America, as well as to develop fluency in oral and written Spanish. Students learn to understand, speak, read and write the language and to acquire practical skills that will equip them for careers in business, government, communications, education and other areas in which language skills and cultural background are assets.

An internship with an international dimension provides realistic experience and enhances career opportunities in the United States and abroad.
