Language & Culture
The Language & Culture Community is for students who want to practice and expand their knowledge of the global community. Both American and International students who know and enjoy learning foreign languages and who enjoy experiencing the customs and cultures of countries from around the globe are encouraged to join this unique shared academic experience. Special features of this community include peer study groups, foreign language suites, discussion groups speaking a foreign language, and close interaction with international students as well as Department of Foreign Languages & Literatures faculty. The Language & Culture Community is housed in the Living Learning Center (LLC) with the NC Teaching Fellows and Watauga Global Community programs. The LLC features four-person suites, kitchens, lounges, a library, and a music room.

The Department of Foreign Languages & Literatures 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.
