Less Commonly Taught Languages

Stand out from the crowd, take a less commonly taught language!

  • Smaller classes
  • Differentiate  your resume
  • Unique learning opportunities
  • Potential scholarships

You gain linguistic knowledge that creates the unique opportunity to travel to exciting/uncommon locales. You build linguistic knowledge/vocabulary/speaking abilities from the ground up; no prior experience necessary or expected. You are eligible for unique and oftentimes uncontested scholarships, internships, and other work opportunities on account of the dearth of speakers available. – Brittany A. Boyle, German and African Studies - Class of 2017 University of Michigan College of Literature, Science & the Arts
