Why Modern Languages at Southern
The ability to communicate in a variety of languages is becoming more essential in today's global community.
This comprehensive program offers several different languages, including American Sign Language courses.
Upon graduation, all students are able to read and speak the language(s) of their declared major at an intermediate level to advanced level per ACTFL national standards. In addition, graduates have been exposed to the aesthetic, historical, and social backgrounds of those who speak these languages.
Each professor is a native speaker or has a near-native level of fluency in the language taught.
Tutors are available in all languages offered.
The program is approved for Spanish and French teacher certification at the elementary, middle, and secondary levels (grades K-12).
Participation in Adventist Colleges Abroad (ACA) for one year is required for all modern languages majors. Summer ACA programs are highly encouraged for minors. (This doesn't delay graduation. Students take a full load and transfer credits).
