When you picture your college experience, do you imagine something bigger than the four walls of a classroom? Do you see life as an adventure and want to participate, not only on campus but around the nation and world? In the Department of World Languages and Cultures at Humboldt State, our students develop language skills and cultural awareness designed to take them places—whether it be a semester abroad, an international career or work in America’s inner cities. Wherever they go, our students see the world from the inside, not as tourists.
As you read this, Humboldt State students are living and learning in every corner of the globe. You can join them! Our affordable study abroad programs are unlike any other in the CSU system. On campus, you’ll enjoy small classes and personalized attention from a diverse, international faculty. And when you graduate, your firsthand knowledge of national ethnic groups and international cultures will give you a career advantage in the 21st century global marketplace.
