Foreign Languages

The study of foreign languages is provided to guide students in learning various languages for careers, Christian service, and personal fulfillment.

Knowledge of one or more foreign languages can provide the basis for a career or greatly enhance possibilities for entering and advancing in a variety of occupations (including Christian missions). The teaching of foreign languages is an open career field. Many opportunities in multinational businesses are available for the person skilled in a foreign language.

Perhaps more importantly, the study of foreign languages helps students discipline their minds by learning new structures of grammar and expression. Study of a foreign language also enables access to the written, spoken, and sung art of that particular culture, whether ancient or modern, and can provide immense personal enrichment as a result.

Biblical languages, especially Greek, are recommended for Bible majors. These courses are helpful in the study of the Biblical text, and are listed in the School of Biblical Studies section of the catalogue.
