World Languages and Cultures

As U.S. population and business interests diversify, you’re probably going to encounter people who primarily speak languages other than English. Bradley’s world language programs give you a strong foundation in the languages and cultures you may encounter. Majors, minors and two-year sequences equip you to understand cultures, and write and speak the languages.

All programs are designed to enhance your studies in other academic programs, with business, communication, English, history, international studies and psychology popular majors or minors. Study abroad options and Bradley’s Global Scholars Program add unique cross-cultural experiences to the coursework.
