Foreign Languages Courses

We offer the most diverse, academically-rigorous foreign language program in the area. The quality of our curriculum is unmatched, and our expert instructors provide the passion, experience and know-how you need to learn a language year-round.

While not required, we encourage you to enroll at least 3-5 days prior to the class starting. Early enrollment ensures your place in the class and helps avoid course cancellations due to low enrollments.
