Why Study Romance Languages?

Romance languages are spoken by hundreds of millions of people on all continents. Our students explore the languages, literature, and cultures of the Romance world, both modern and historical. They work on understanding, speaking, reading, and writing the modern language. 

Second-year French, Italian, Portuguese, or Spanish fulfills the language requirement for the BA and complements many different majors and other academic programs at UO, including Romance languages, Latin American studies, global studies, business, journalism, human physiology, other languages ... and even the sciences.
