Prepare to be a part of a multicultural and multilingual world

As a student in the Department of Modern Languages you will be able to combine your interest in languages, cultures, linguistics and literature with other fields of study across the university. By majoring or minoring in a world language you will gain valuable language and cultural skills, which will make you a better communicator and critical thinker. You will learn how to use these skills domestically and internationally to find a rewarding career and to make a difference in the world.

Week in the Life of a K-State Modern Languages Student



What goes on at K-State Modern Languages?

We have the Modern Languages Student Association, a club made for students to connect with other students studying different languages within the department. All languages are welcome to attend regular meetings, fun cultural events, or just relax (or get competitive) at our game nights!

Weekly Language Opportunities

At K-State Modern Languages we like to make sure our students have plenty of time to practice their chosen language, both in and out of the classroom. To give students this time, we have weekly casual hangouts where students can chat with other students about whatever they want, as long as it's in another language! If you're studying French you might want to check out Table Fran├žaise, which meets every Thursday. Or maybe you're studying German? Then you can attend Kaffeestunde, every Monday! No matter what you study, there will be opportunities for you to learn and grow in the Modern Languages Department.
