Language Studies

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

Dordt College language faculty will teach you language skills while also helping you understand other cultures and appreciate diversity. You’ll develop a global perspective that will help you 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, though. Dordt students learn about languages within a Reformed, biblical perspective and work closely with highly educated, caring professors. Having a major or minor in a foreign language at Dordt College is a gateway to diverse career possibilities and a unique outlook on life.
