Department Head

Dr. Martine Fisher, World Languages Director (x5532)

 

The study of languages is integral to a well-rounded education in today’s global society.  We in the World Language Department feel that every student can and should study at least one world language.  The study of languages builds skills of listening, speaking, reading, writing, and promotes understanding and appreciation of cultural differences. Learning a world language supports academic achievement, promotes understanding of other cultures and peoples, and opens opportunities for employment not only in business but also government, international relations and law, communications, travel, publishing and scientific research, among others.
