The College of Liberal Arts and Social Sciences offers students a traditional liberal education to meet the needs of the 21st century, allowing them to compete for a variety of careers in an increasingly complex and evolving world.

World Languages and Cultures 


The program emphasizes knowledge of modern foreign cultures and enables the student to develop the five skills of speaking, reading, writing, listening and cultural competency in at least one world language. Students benefit from a wide array of study abroad opportunities in Mexico, France, Austria, China, Korea and Japan.

The major requirements for the World Languages and Cultures program are grouped into four options; Francophone studies (France and French-speaking cultures); German studies; Hispanic Studies (Spain and Latin America); Chinese and East Asian Studies (Chinese, Japanese and Korean).

Each of the options has a culture  track and a Trade track. In the culture track, the student takes more internationally-related course work in the humanities and political science. In the trade track, the student takes courses in international economics and business.

Spanish Major

AUM students may also opt to pursue a pure Spanish major. This program differs from the World Language and Cultures and International Trade program offered at AUM in that they require more intensive preparation in the Spanish language. The Spanish program is, therefore, tailored to students, who wish to pursue graduate work in, or who wish to teach, the Spanish language. AUM students may also have access to foreign language education certification through this program.
