It also provides English courses for non-English majors at both the undergraduate and graduate levels and provides second foreign language courses in Japanese, German, and French. The Department of Foreign Languages has established multiple study and research centers – including the Academic English Writing Center, Language and Cognition Center, Academic English Teacher Development Center, and Translation Studio – to support and facilitate the interdisciplinary research, especially at the intersection of liberal arts and sciences, which is the focus of the Department of Foreign Languages.
