LANGUAGE STUDIES

Overview

Foreign Language Students

Our world is a global village, and good communication increasingly requires the ability to speak more than one language. Knowing a second language expands career options, makes people more competitive in the job market, and better equips us to respond to the biblical command to love our neighbors as ourselves.

Dordt College faculty of language studies teach language skills while also helping create understanding of other cultures and appreciation of diversity. Students develop a global perspective that helps them interact more effectively with people of different backgrounds.

Studying languages at Dordt is not simply a way to get a step ahead in a world that is increasingly in need of bilingual and multilingual employees. Dordt students learn about languages within a Reformed, biblical perspective and work closely with highly educated, caring professors. Having a major or minor in language studies at Dordt College is a gateway to diverse career possibilities and gives a unique outlook on life.
