About Languages + Cultures

Broadening your world view

The Department of Languages and Cultures recognizes that foreign language education is an indispensable part of the development of the individual in the Jesuit tradition. Thus, the knowledge and appreciation of other languages and literatures, through the study of culture, is at the heart of the program. The department’s mission is to encourage and challenge Loyola students to reach a level of competency in a foreign language that broadens their world view and allows them to clearly and openly exchange ideas and opinions with people of other cultures.
