World Languages and Cultures

Welcome to the online home of the World Languages and Cultures Program.


Our Mission:

The mission of the Drake University World Languages and Cultures Program fully supports the mission of the broader University by fostering the development of globally responsible students. As such, the Program mentors students as they gain functional competence in a language other than English, develop cultural understanding, and become responsible global citizens. By emphasizing speaking skills, the program prepares students to study or live abroad, enhance professional development, and pursue personal interests. 














For a detailed description of our program and how we work with students, we have provided our "About" page.
