Frequently Asked Questions

As a liberal arts college, Carleton challenges its students to study broadly as well as deeply, and to gain a larger understanding of the world they live in. In addition to the primary benefits that foreign language competency can offer (including basic communication, the ability to read foreign texts, and interaction with those of a different culture), learning another language offers a unique perspective on other cultures and worldviews.
