Over 1100 University of Oregon students currently major or minor in French, Italian, Spanish, or Romance Languages (a major which combines advanced study in two Romance languages).
These students concentrate on the languages, literatures, and cultures of the Romance world, both modern and historical. They work on understanding, speaking, reading, and writing the modern language; they also focus on the historical roots of our languages and cultures, and on their writings (such as fiction, poetry, film, theatre, criticism, and non-fiction).
To expose students to the cultures of countries where Romance languages are spoken, we urge students to study in a country where their target language is spoken. Visit the UO Study Abroad page for more information.
Students who intend to pursue graduate work in Romance Languages are advised to begin a second Romance Language early in their studies. Courses in English and other literatures are aslo recommended. A goal of the department is to give students a thorough view of the cultures of the countries where Romance Languages are spoken.
To declare a major or minor in French, Italian, Spanish or Romance Languages, see one of our undergraduate advisors for a drop-in advising session (no appointment necessary).
