“I have held managerial positions at the Franco-American Institute, an international business school, and have been the director of LISAA, L’Institute Superieur des Arts Appliques, for the past 17 years. LISAA is a prestigious, private art and design school throughout France. I helped set up our new school in New Delhi, India, and we even have an exchange program with the art department at Nazareth!”
Why Choose Nazareth for Foreign Language?
The purpose of the Modern Foreign Languages major program is to educate students to think and perceive rationally and critically. This education includes reading and thinking; learning about literary and cultural movements; and making connections between the primarily aesthetic literary artifacts of the culture and its political, social, and economic history.
Through the Emerson Foreign Language Laboratory, students are trained to use new learning and technology media at all language levels to allow them to communicate effectively in the world. Likewise, they are encouraged to prepare themselves philosophically and practically to make linkages between the major and other academic disciplines.
Students majoring in modern foreign languages learn about the world of ideas and letters, past and present. This training requires study abroad in both languages, as well as comprehensive examinations in both languages. The cohesive, integrated program of foreign language, culture, and literature courses ensures maximum proficiency in the target languages.
