QUESTIONS ABOUT PLACEMENT TESTING OR RESULTS SHOULD BE DIRECTED TO THE WLL ADVISOR RACHEL HALL (rachelh@smu.edu).

Our students can major in French, German, Spanish & "World Languages" (a two-language major). In addition to these languages, students can earn a minor in Arabic, Chinese, Italian, Japanese, Latin and Russian.

Students are free to explore many dimensions of one or more languages and cultures through a wide variety of authentic materials - from literature and history to films and television & programming.

In addition, the WLL Technology Center offers students the opportunity to discover languages through a wide variety of technologies. 

We encourage you to contact us with any questions you may have.
