Students in every field benefit from proficiency in a modern language, because it develops critical-thinking skills and understanding of their own first language. Another language broadens appreciation for one’s culture and that of others. It prepares one for active citizenship in an increasingly multicultural and multilingual world.

In a highly competitive world, with an ever more intricate global economy, proficiency in at least one additional language represents an invaluable asset. It opens wide opportunities for careers in business, law, government, communication, medicine, and many other fields.

We recommend a major in a modern language or a double major including a modern language, to all students pursuing a bachelor’s degree on this campus.

The modern language options at IU Southeast are:

  • French
  • German
  • Spanish
