The units within the school conduct original research and instruction on literary, cultural, and linguistics theories and practices in many languages and traditions. Faculty members within the school also have research and teaching interests in the moving image arts and religious and international studies. Its departments and programs are the primary source of instruction in foreign and classical languages at the basic and advanced levels and offer numerous majors and minors, which expose students to linguistic and cultural knowledge that responds to our rapidly globalizing world.
