Dr. PaseroDear Students,

It is a great pleasure for me and all of our faculty to welcome you to a vibrant, exciting and cutting-edge department, where we not only train you in putting different languages to practical use but also in their ever-dynamic literary and cultural manifestations.  

The Department of Languages, Literatures and Cultures offers courses in Arabic, Classical Greek, French, German, Italian, Latin, Spanish, and Mandarin Chinese, through which students can meet the language proficiency requirement in Arts and Sciences and other colleges. The new Marquette Core Curriculum requirements can be satisfied at the Discovery level with many courses from our department, while others satisfy ESSV and Writing Intensive requirements. In addition, our offers regularly include non-English literatures, history and culture, but taught in English translation.

Academic majors are offered in Classical Languages, Classical Studies, French, German, Latin American Studies, Spanish Language and Literature, and Spanish for the Professions; minors are offered in Classical Languages, Classical Studies, French, German, Latin American Studies and Spanish. Also offered is a Master of Arts degree in Spanish.

We also encourage and support extracurricular involvement in language honorary clubs, study abroad, internships, Service Learning and related community engagement.  


Again, welcome to our department!

Dr. Anne Pasero
Chair and Professor of Spanish
