Modern Foreign Language Major
Modern Foreign Languages
The Department of Modern Foreign Languages at Fisk University is multifaceted in its mission. We are a community of educators and scholars dedicated to our students, their education and our areas of expertise. We encourage our students to go beyond the mastery of verb conjugations and basic grammatical constructions. We promote an awareness of and an appreciation for cultural diversity. In addition, we expose our students to a more nuanced world and prepare them to be global citizens. The curriculum offers the possibility of combining Spanish or French with other disciplines. Students who choose a joint major in Spanish and some other areas of concentration such as Business or Biology may notably improve their job possibilities and marketability.
