Major programs are available in Arabic Studies, Chinese Studies, French, German, Italian, Japanese Studies and Spanish. Major programs consist of advanced courses at the 200 and 300 levels. The major does not include elementary and intermediate courses (100 level courses), which students must complete if their prior linguistic training is insufficient to take advanced courses. Minor programs are available for all languages.

All students are strongly encouraged to participate in DePaul's Foreign Study Programs in China, France, Germany, Greece, Italy, Japan, Mexico, Spain, and other locations. Consult the Study Abroad Office for current offerings.
