Student Opportunities

At Washington College, modern languages majors are encouraged to take their studies outside of the classroom. 

In addition to weekly coffee and conversation meetings, the department offers specialized language suites and ample study abroad opportunities for students looking for a greater level of immersion.

Washington College is also home to three language honorary societies: Delta Phi Alpha, Pi Delta Phi, and Sigma Delta Pi.
