The University of Vermont offers majors and minors in more languages than any other New England flagship institution. Whether you major or minor in a language at UVM, you will develop vital skills for your professional and personal future, including:
- critical thinking skills
- attention to detail in clarity of analysis and expression in writing and speaking
- empathy and cross-cultural sensitivity.
You’ll find language studies at UVM offer the best of both worlds: small classes taught by gifted and committed faculty members in the context of a large university, which offers numerous study abroad opportunities and on-campus language communities.
Language proficiency is not just a skill that broadens your capacity to communicate--it is a passport leading to deeper cultural understanding. Studying a language can add another dimension to global and regional studies, history, political science, or any other discipline you choose to study.
Our language curriculum prepares graduates for careers in a wide range of fields both in the U.S. and abroad, from higher education to the corporate world and NGOs. Check out what some of our alumni are doing.
