The Department of International Languages and Cultures at Webster University is recognized for its diverse curriculum, outstanding faculty, and international course offerings. We have a variety of majors, minors, and certificates to meet student's needs and prepare for their careers. Students explore the world of language study with us and, whether students choose to major in a language or to enhance another major by studying a language, we help them find their interests and develop them. Whether your goal is to earn a degree in a foreign language or to satisfy your curiosity about another culture, ILC is ready to help.

Students in this department receive a strong liberal arts education and excellent career preparation for a global job market because they acquire language skills as well as an international understanding and perspective, and can apply that knowledge in today's world. The more complete "world view" students have, the better prepared they are to meet the challenges of the future. In addition, students develop invaluable skills in reading, writing, public speaking, and critical thinking.

We offer a variety of learning opportunities through traditional daytime as well as evening courses, weekend courses, exchanges with Argentina and France, and internships in China, Germany, Mexico and Japan through Webster University's International Business Internship Exchange. You'll also find culture courses in English.
