Languages, Literatures, and Cultures

Inspired by the Statement of Mission of the University of San Francisco, a Jesuit and Catholic university, the Department of Languages, Literatures, and Cultures states as its essential objective to prepare students to shape a multicultural world with creativity, generosity, and compassion.

The Department unreservedly promotes language acquisition as a requirement for the accomplishment of this objective. The language requirement not only exposes the inner workings of language in general, but it also provides the point of departure for the development of proficiency adequate to academic and professional needs, and promotes the multidisciplinary study of cultures and societies both outside the U.S. and within our increasingly multicultural communities. Whether as a tool to investigate the past, analyze the present, or forecast the future, knowledge of languages and cultures gives USF students privileges they would otherwise lack.
