Welcome to the School of Languages, Literatures, and Cultures in the College of Arts and Humanities at the University of Maryland, College Park.


The School is a transdiciplinary teaching and research unit. Our students, faculty, and staff investigate and engage with the linguistic, cultural, cinematic, and literary worlds of speakers of Arabic, Chinese, French, German, Hebrew, Italian, Japanese, Korean, Persian, Portuguese, Russian, and Spanish, as well as questions surrounding language learning itself. 


We invite you to learn more about our undergraduate and graduate academic programs as well as our departments and centers, the Language House Living and Learning Program, the Persian Flagship and Arabic Flagship Programs, and the Summer Language Institutes.
