German, Russian, and East Asian Languages


We are excited to announce the merger of the Romance & Classical Studies (ROCS) and the German, Russian, & East Asian Languages (GREAL) Departments into the Department of World Languages and Cultures (WRLD).

Our mission is to promote linguistic and cultural competence as a bridge to achieving intercultural understanding of global issues, ideas, and values.

Thanks for your understanding as over the next few months we update and integrate the GREAL and ROCS webpages into a WRLD website.

Congratulations to Professor Christina Guenther and Professor Vibha Bhalla for being awarded the National Endowment for the Humanities grant for their project "Understanding Im/Migration: Local and Global Perspectives".
