Need to fulfill the GE language requirement? Looking to get off the beaten path and take something interesting? (No offense, Spanish.) We regularly offer five years of instruction in Russian language, and two years of instruction in Bosnian/Croatian/Serbian, , Czech (via CourseShare with other Big 10 universities), Polish, and Romanian. Other languages, such as Albanian and Old Church Slavonic, are offered as reading courses at the graduate level. (The reading courses are also open to undergraduates with appropriate academic backgrounds, at the instructor's discretion.)
Many of these languages are in demand in such fields as business, government, law, education and journalism, and students find their language skills to be directly relevant to the job market. Language study is also a great way to explore other cultures.
