Language Study

Language and the History Major

The History Department strongly encourages students to study at least one language at TCNJ and to take advantage of the opportunity to broaden their cultural horizon by reaching beyond their high school language to study such critical languages as Arabic, Persian, Chinese, Japanese or Russian.

Intensive Elementary Language Courses

The World Languages & Cultures Department offers intensive language instruction in the following areas:

  • Arabic

  • Russian

The intensive language courses are numbered 151/152, and 251/252. Each of these courses is a two unit course, and meets 7 hours per week. The intensive courses are designed to enable students to advance more quickly in acquiring communicative skills and to prepare them more fully to engage in study abroad in countries speaking these languages.
