Language Study at Cornell


Students study languages at Cornell for many reasons. Some students study language to fulfill graduation requirements (particularly students in the College of Arts and Sciences); some study for personal interest, for professional development, or for preparation for graduate study.  From ancient languages to contemporary languages from across the globe, the range of languages available for study is broad.  Languages are offered through the College of Arts and Sciences and are open to any student.  Explore the richness of Cornell’s language offerings from the list below.
