Foreign Languages

Welcome to the Department of World Languages and Literatures!

Foreign languages have been offered at Stevens Point since the founding of the Stevens Point Normal School in 1894. The languages you can learn on campus or through distance learning include Arabic, Chinese, French, German, Hmong, Japanese, Russian, and Spanish. We offer majors and minors in French, German and Spanish. The program in Teaching English as a Second Language is also housed in our department. In addition, our teacher education program includes French, German, Spanish, and English as a Second Language. Finally, we offer a minor in Comparative Literature

UW-Stevens Point's excellence is based on the emphasis placed on helping students acquire proficiency in language and culture and providing them with opportunities to live and study in the countries and regions of the world where the language and culture can be found. In cooperation with the Office of International Programs, we offer semester long language immersion programs in Caen (France), Marburg (Germany) and Valladolid (Spain). Students of Spanish may also choose the summer program in Oaxaca (Mexico).
