Modern Languages Minor
The modern languages minor allows students to develop oral and written communications skills in two languages (including Arabic, Chinese, Russian, and Spanish) during their time at Northwestern.
Learning Russian is more than just learning a new set of vocabulary. I had the unique opportunity to explore a whole new culture through the lens of its language. Studying under the instruction of one who spent several years working and living in Russia, I was able to excel not only in the language, but also in my understanding of what life is like for the citizens of the largest country in the world.
Double your languages, double your opportunities—opportunities for employment, career advancement, effective cross-cultural ministries, and travel enrichment!
