Languages Taught at UWM

What language should I study?

Some careers and locations lend themselves to learning certain languages, but learning a less commonly taught language will give you a specialized skill. Some students might want to learn a particular language to connect with their cultural roots, while others may have dreams of travel. There are many good reasons to take a foreign language! What are your priorities? UWM teaches twenty languages in addition to English—find one that is right for you!
“To prosper economically and to improve relations with other countries, Americans need to read, speak, and understand other languages. It’s absolutely essential for the citizens of the United States to become fluent in other languages, and schools, colleges, and universities must include producing bilingual students as a central part of their mission.”
–U.S. Secretary of Education Arne Duncan
