Student Resources

When you study in International Languages and Cultures, you will find many resources that can help you meet your goals. The department works closely with the University's study abroad programs to maximize students' exposure to their target languages and cultures. We also work with students who seek to do internships in their selected language. Graduates and seniors in the department have a strong track record of obtaining grants to continue their studies abroad.

Language assistants in the Learning Resource Center

The ILC hires student language assistants to support students' participation in Chinese, French, German and Spanish classes. These assistants tutor students one on one and in groups, and they make recommendations on how student can improve their work. Students can contact language assistants by using our language assistance program hotlines. Give it a try, and you'll see an improvement in your language learning and skills!
