Major/Minor Requirements

The Department of Modern Languages and Literatures offers a major in French, German and Spanish. Stetson University also offers majors in Russian Studies and Latin American Studies. The major combines incredible opportunities for personal enrichment with the practical skills required in this age of globalization. Students enjoy learning about a foreign culture while perfecting their language skills. For that reason, it is expected that all language majors will participate in at least one semester of the study abroad program. Students who spend a semester abroad often find it easy to double major. Students can also work on certification to teach at the K-12 level as part of their major.

The department also offers a minor in French, German, Russian and Spanish. A minor can also usually be completed during one semester abroad after the student has finished 102 or met the prerequisite to participate.
