Modern Language at Bryant

Language study teaches you to think critically and analytically, and introduces you to ways in which other cultures construct thought and make meaning.
Bryant Professor Elisabetta Misuraca

About This Department

Language study is necessary for employment in a range of professions and offers many opportunities for graduate study.

Our department offers programs in Chinese, French, Italian, and Spanish. Classes are conducted in the target language. We also host a language lab, which provides supplemental instruction and teacher- and student-guided instructional materials.

Faculty members are dedicated educators whose outstanding research runs the gamut from second-language acquisition and applied linguistics to cultural and contemporary issues in countries where the language is spoken. Our department often co-sponsors many of the internationally-focused events held on campus.
