Language Study at Tufts
Tufts is one of few universities with a foreign language requirement at both the undergraduate and graduate level.
The School of Arts and Science’s Department of International Literary and Cultural Studies is the administrative home to the following foreign language and culture programs: Arabic, Chinese, German, Hebrew, Japanese and Russian.
The Department of Romance Studies is committed to educating students in French, Italian, Portuguese, Spanish languages and culture, and in Latin American Studies.
All students receiving degrees from The Fletcher School must possess the ability to speak a foreign (second) language sufficiently well enough to be able to exchange ideas in a conversation with a native speaker and possess the ability to read and restate into English primary written materials on contemporary topics involving foreign affairs.
