College offers first of its kind study abroad program
Goshen’s Modern & Classical Languages Department highlights American Sign Language and Spanish. Studying a language will give you the opportunity to study abroad and become immersed in the language and culture of the country. For example, past ASL majors have spent a semester in Jamaica for Study-Service Term (SST), teaching American Sign Language to children there.
Spanish boasts the highest numbers of minors at GC. For majors, our unique one-year residency requirement abroad in a Spanish speaking country will prepare you to enter the job market, not only knowing Spanish well, but understanding the cultures of Spanish-speaking people.
In addition to these two majors or minors, the Modern & Classical Languages Department also offers language courses in Arabic and French, as well as introductory language courses for SST groups: Khmer (Cambodia), Mandarin (China) and Swahili (Tanzania), typically offered the semester just prior to the SST.
