A major in Foreign Languages requires completion of the core requirements plus specialization in either French or Spanish. Students majoring in Foreign Languages are urged to spend some time studying abroad, through the Term III Study Abroad programs or perhaps through the selective Junior Fall Term Abroad program. Students seeking teacher certification in French or Spanish complete the major as well as the required Teacher Education courses.
Minors in French and Spanish are also available.
Note: Elmira College students also have the opportunity to study a number of other languages including Japanese, German, Italian, Latin, Modern and Classical Greek, Russian, and Chinese.
