As chair of La Salle University’s Department of Foreign Languages and Literatures, I invite you to peruse our home on the Internet. The Department aims to expand the potential of our students by equipping them with a second and, for many, a third language. We recognize that although the world has grown smaller through globalization, those who are adept in additional languages are leaders of their chosen fields. In addition to fluency, students gain knowledge of the historic development of a given language and its literature and culture. Our curriculum offers rigorous preparation for the myriad of careers that exist for multilingual graduates. We, the professors and students, work as a team to ensure that each graduate utilizes every opportunity to master his or her chosen language.
The Department’s faculty upholds globally recognized standards of academic excellence. Our professors are active researchers and publish books and articles on a regular basis. They are also active in local and national organizations that support and promote various linguistic communities. In the classroom, our faculty use well-honed teaching methods and the latest technology to provide the best learning experience for the students. We consistently produce graduates that have good control of the mandatory language skills of comprehension, speaking, reading, and writing the foreign language. If you have any further questions, please feel free to contact me directly at firstname.lastname@example.org.
