The Department of World Languages & Cultures is the largest and most diverse in the
College, culturally and programmatically. Our programs and courses offer multiple
opportunities for undergraduate and graduate study in language, literature, culture,

the University of Utah are taught in the Department, which provides students with
a forum for research and education in more than 20 linguistic and literary traditions.
