Welcome! ¬°Bienvenidos! Bienvenus!

In the CSUB Department of Modern Languages and Literature, we believe that the study of other languages is essential for the twenty-first-century global citizen. Immersion in another language fundamentally shapes the way one thinks. The Department offers a wide variety of courses and Programs in the fields of foreign languages, literature, and culture. They are designed for those students who intend to major or minor in languages other than English; to obtain a Graduate Degree; for students who seek a broad liberal arts education in preparation for a variety of professions; and for students whose careers will be furthered by the knowledge of another language and culture. The Department’s Programs serve and promote all academic divisions of the University in providing students the language and cultural training necessary to support international and intercultural endeavors.
