GREENVILLE, S.C. (May 2, 2018) – Bob Jones University’s Division of Modern Language will offer new programs in French, German, Spanish, linguistics, and world cultures beginning this fall.
“These new language programs expand our offerings and significantly raise the profile of the University in providing courses and programs not widely available in Christian higher education,” said Dr. Jeremy Patterson, chair of the Division of Modern Language and Literature.
BJU’s new Bachelors of Arts in French will include courses in French grammar, literature, and conversation as well as culture and civilization. In addition, students will have the opportunity to participate in study abroad programs and apply their language skills in French-speaking countries.
BJU will also offer a German minor which allows students to develop skills in conversation and composition.
In addition, BJU will offer certificates in linguistics, second language teaching, Spanish translation and interpretation, and world cultures.
In 2016, BJU introduced language halls, giving students the opportunity to experience daily language immersion in their residence halls. BJU’s Student Life & Discipleship places groups of students with native speakers according to the language they are studying. Students will now receive academic credit for their participation in any non-English language hall.
