The Department offers five different undergraduate majors, seven minors, coursework in several more languages, plus World Literatures and Cultures in English.
In addition, the Department sponsors several study abroad programs and a variety of co-curricular activities including language tables, conversation hours, and language clubs. Undergraduate students who choose to pursue a major or minor in the Department may wish to consider complementing their studies with the dual major in International Affairs, with the teacher education program, or with any of the other academic majors and minors available through the University of New Hampshire. Such course work will not only broaden a student's intellectual horizons, but may also serve to enhance his or her employment opportunities or prospects for graduate education.
Former majors in the Department have done graduate studies at many of the country's finest institutions of higher education and have pursued successful careers in such fields as law, medicine, business and industry, education and translation, government, social and humanitarian services, international relations, and journalism. The Department gladly offers advice about these and other academic and employment options and urges students to discuss such questions with an advisor early in their undergraduate career.
