Language Learning

Connect with new cultures and perspectives by developing your communication skills in another language. Becoming proficient in a language other than English is a vital part of the Mount Holyoke experience and essential to becoming an engaged global citizen.

Learning a new language unlocks multiple ways of understanding the world and fosters more empathetic and equitable relationships between people. That’s why, in 1876, Mount Holyoke College became the first college in the nation to require the study of a foreign language.
