The world is getting smaller by the minute…figuratively speaking, of course. We live in a global village, and the world is at our fingertips through advances in technology, transportation and communications. What better way to connect to our world than through foreign languages? Whether it’s cheering on your favorite fútbol team in Central America, admiring works of art at the Louvre, or translating a business deal for BMW, Tennessee Tech University can help you make the jump into a lifelong adventure and fulfilling career field. The possibilities are endless!

Graduates in foreign languages from TTU work in many fields, including business, education, international diplomacy, science and engineering, and communications. The benefits of learning a foreign language are countless. Doors will open and your horizon will be expanded as you venture into new worlds and learn to appreciate other cultures from around the globe.

We've Moved! The Department of Foreign Languages is temporarily located in Foundation Hall on East 10th Street while South Hall is being renovated. The departmental office is located in Room 173. Enter through the building's front doors, and follow the orange signs.

Our Computer Lab is still available in our temporary home and many of our faculty offices are located here. We also have the use of five classrooms in Foundation Hall, and our popular Euro Cafe/Study Area will reopen for Fall Semester 2014 in part of the building's former cafeteria space. Come and see us - we're really not that far away!
