French, Spanish, German, Arabic, Chinese or Italian - it's all about communication.

Add a global perspective to your resume and set yourself apart from other job candidates by learning to speak another language. At BW you can attain a major or minor in French, German, or Spanish or take advantage of instruction in Arabic, Chinese or Italian.

Baldwin Wallace University's practical approach links rigorous language study to real life. Our courses don't just teach you the language but provide cultural insights from the very beginning. The essential experience of expressing yourself in another language lets you view the world through a new cultural lens. You will feel your cultural fluency increase as you use your language skills to investigate contemporary lifestyles, current events, literature, cultural history, intercultural communication and other topics.  

Make your language come alive outside the language classroom with cultural field trips, our Baldwin Wallace University International Film Series, language club activities, Language Across the Curriculum opportunities and service learning. All these opportunities bring the languages to life and provide experiential learning at all levels. Or you can journey beyond northeast Ohio to spend a semester overseas at one of our partner institutions, travel with a BW group tour or do an internship.
