Department Mission Statement
- The Department of Languages, Literatures, and Cultures, in consonance with the University's mission, offers a variety of courses that enhance students' understanding and appreciation of other cultures and languages as well as their own.
- In addition to the broad knowledge base acquired through these courses, students will understand that language and culture are inseparable. Upon fulfilling the Department's requirements for undergraduate or graduate programs, students will be adequately prepared for lifelong learning in a multicultural world.
The World Language exchange was created in 2013 to manage the sharing of less commonly taught languages across the UNC system. This exchange offers access to a variety of languages such as Persian, Cherokee and Ancient Greek as well as courses that explore culture.
