Welcome to the World Languages Program at the University of West Florida!
In order to understand our own cultural heritage and the thought patterns that inform it is to compare them to cultures and languages that are different from our own. By stepping into another cultural space—through language, literature, film and popular culture—we learn to appreciate who we are. We also learn to look at the world from a different perspective and more fully comprehend the range and complexities of human life.
The World Languages Program at UWF is committed to providing students with the opportunity to embark on this exciting journey. From basic classes for beginners of a language to advanced courses in literature, culture, film and civilization, UWF language students engage in meaningful activities as well as in career-enhancing strategies - including learning to communicate in a foreign language, understanding and working within cultural diversity, applying historical background knowledge, negotiating meaning and problem-solving.
In small classes and a student-centered environment, our faculty is committed to enhance students’ linguistic and cultural literacy.
We offer a minor in Spanish as well as courses in Arabic, Chinese, German, French and Japanese. We will soon start offering courses in Latin.
Students may receive a minor in Spanish to enhance placement in a competitive global marketplace.
