My time studying in the Department of Modern Languages, Literatures and Cultures was very positive, as I was offered a very well-rounded education in the Humanities that allowed me to greatly improve my linguistic competence in both French and Italian[...]. I was also able to spend my 3rd year studying abroad at the Université de Savoie in France! I am now off to do my masters in European Studies and owe everything to Brock’s Modern Languages Department. If you are a student looking to immerse yourself in European culture and civilization, Brock is the place for you!
