Welcome to the Department’s Website. In these pages you will find information about our programs, requirements, resources, public events, news and the research being carried out by students, instructors and Faculty members.
The Department contributes to the Calgary and Alberta communities in a number of ways. We have participated in provincial curriculum development for French and Spanish, supported high school language teachers and Alberta Learning in numerous projects. We are active participants in the training of teachers of languages and back the efforts of the Provincial Government to promote the study of languages in grades 4-12 beginning 2006. The Department has hosted Mexican writers through WordFest and has shared in the activities of the Latin American Studies program. We have organized the Annual Week of the Italian Language in the World in collaboration with the Italian Community and the Italian Ministry of Foreign Affairs. We are planning activities in conjunction with the Alliance Française and the Calgary Italian community.
Thank you for your interest in our Department. We look forward to sharing our expertise with you and to assisting you personally.
