The Department of Modern Languages helps prepare Texas State students for careers in education, international relations and business, and foreign service, as well as other professions. 

If you want to think globally, then you need to speak a foreign language. The Modern Language Association:

"regards the learning of languages other than English as vital to an understanding of the world; such learning serves as a portal to the literatures, cultures, historical perspectives, and human experiences that constitute the human record. Pragmatically, we believe in the value of becoming part of a global conversation in which knowledge of English is often not enough, and the security and future of our country depend on accurately understanding other cultures through their linguistic and cultural practices." 

The faculty of the Department of Modern Languages publish internationally and are recognized for their expertise in literature, linguistics, cultural studies, and film. The department also publishes Letras Hispanas: Revista de Literatura y Cultura, a peer-reviewed, open-access online journal of scholarly essays that engage topics in connection with Spanish, Latin American, and U.S. Latino literature and cultures.
