HSS is the cornerstone of St. Mary's liberal arts and Marianist education. With more than 20 disciplines to choose from, this is the largest school on campus.
In the Department of Languages at St. Mary’s University, students learn to think critically and write clearly about an array of literary, linguistic and cultural topics. These skills are strong preparation for careers in education, government, international business or for graduate and doctoral studies.
The mission of the Department of Languages is to offer a broad, liberal education that enables students to read analytically, think critically and write clearly in dealing with literature, linguistics and culture. A degree in Languages provides students with tools to function effectively in different linguistic, cultural and professional contexts, thus enabling them to become leaders for the common good.
