Do it!! The department of languages is excellent. I've had a lot of exposure to it between Spanish, German and TEFL, and I can wholeheartedly tell you that the professors and classes are superb. Plus, UWEC has awesome study abroad programs, which is actually one of the reasons I chose to come here.

International leader

If you're thinking of studying a language or studying abroad, the Department of Languages works with you to find the right program to fit your individual needs. The superior faculty works with you to get everything out of a language course here at UWEC as possible.
