New degree at the University of Utah invites more students to major in World Languages & Cultures

As one of the largest language departments in the country, the Department of World Languages & Cultures at the University of Utah offers 21 languages, eight majors and 12 minors. Now, after a groundbreaking restructuring and expansion of their Comparative Literary & Cultural Studies degree, the department will introduce seven new options to better meet the needs and interests of more students in Fall 2022. Called the World Languages & Cultures BA, it will include six emphases that focus on advanced language study (Comparative Literature, Arabic, Italian, Korean, Persian and Portuguese) and one (Cultural Studies) that allows students to study global topics in English.
