Ancient & Modern Languages Department

Engage the world — past and present — through the power of words. From Biblical Greek to Spanish, Ancient & Modern Languages offers the tools you need.

Why do we at Asbury University think learning a foreign language is important?

You get to customize your study of ancient and modern languages at Asbury. We know that language study introduces you to new realms of ideas, customs, habits, and values. We want you to be ready, both professionally and personally, for the demands of the twenty-first century. You also gain exposure to other literatures, cultures, and world views that can only be enjoyed with the knowledge of another language. Our commitment to the benefits of learning a foreign language is so strong that foreign language study forms part of our core curriculum.

You may choose to study from a wide selection of modern and ancient languages, and study abroad opportunities are available as well. Explore the languages available through the Department of Ancient & Modern Languages.
