Foreign Languages


The study of foreign languages is vital to the education of a fully informed, well rounded citizen. In these courses, students learn not only the language of the various countries but also their cultures, thus deepening their knowledge of the wider world and preparing them for international travel. Eureka College offers courses in Ancient Greek and a minor in Spanish.

As the Hispanic population in The United States continues to grow, a vista of career opportunities will become available for those with a knowledge of Spanish. A Spanish minor will provide the student with this knowledge and with an appreciation for cultural diversity.
