Students that want to acquire a foreign language (or two) and learn about the products, practices, and values of cultures other than their own, will find their intellectual home in the Department of Foreign Languages at Belmont University. In addition to offering three majors in French, German, and Spanish, Belmont University offers seven minors in the following languages: Chinese, French, German, Italian, Japanese, Latin, and Spanish.

A foreign language minor can help students build on the linguistic proficiency and knowledge acquired since middle school or high school; and it can give students the opportunity to start learning a language they have not had the chance to study before attending Belmont University. Students will find that learning a foreign language with Belmont faculty is both challenging and rewarding. Foreign language students at Belmont University, regardless of the language/culture they study, will develop close relationships with their professors and will have impactful learning experiences both on campus and in a host of immersion settings (locally and abroad).
