Foreign Language & Literature
Click the image of our Foreign Language Department website or the links inside the yellow box for the latest updates and information about foreign languages at NEIU.
The study of foreign languages and literatures at NEIU leads to an understanding of the complex relationship between cultural production (for example, literature, film, and music) and the social, economic and political forces that frame this production over time.
The language and critical thinking skills you develop through written and oral exposition, research, and service learning will enhance your career opportunities in today's globalized labor market and provide the basis for a lifetime exploration of your own and others' cultures and worldviews.
We offer courses leading to 1) a Master of Arts in Latin American Literatures and Cultures, 2) a Bachelor of Arts in French or Spanish, and 3) minors in Spanish, French, or Korean. We also offer basic language courses in Arabic, Chinese, French, German, Italian, Japanese, Korean, Polish, Russian, Spanish and Swahili, as well as introductory courses taught in English on the cultures associated with these languages.
For detailed information on course offerings, study abroad opportunities, honor societies, language back credit policy, the Language Lab, the language placement exam, and contact information, visit our website at www.neiu.edu/~fldept.
