English and World Languages at Augusta University

Why World Languages? The languages we study are not “foreign”: 48 million people in the US speak Spanish, French, German, Chinese, and Arabic (including 1.5 million in Georgia)! World Languages is the name used by more of our peer institutions, as well as the Georgia Department of Education. This change not only better represents current trends in the field, it also more accurately describes the programs offered by our department. Welcome to English and World Languages!
