Description:Building bridges between people, cultures and nations takes people who can empathize with different cultural viewpoints and who are fluent in multiple languages. At Dawson, you can choose from a wide selection of languages: Spanish, Italian, German, Mandarin, Hebrew and Modern Greek. In addition, you will be introduced to a variety of cultural, historical and linguistic aspects of those languages. This profile offers exciting learning opportunities, such as a student exchange trip to Germany, an internship in Spain and one-on-one time with German and Spanish language assistants. Students may pursue the German language diploma (DSD I), a DELE Spanish Language Certificate, a CILS Italian Language Certificate or the Certificate in Hellenic Studies.
