Message from the Chair

Welcome to the Department of Modern Languages at California State University Domínguez Hills. At CSUDH we benefit from a unique setting in the metropolitan area of Los Angeles, a global city with a tremendous cultural diversity. To prepare our students for the demands of a complex new world defined by its global economy, we are committed to developing our students’ language demands to better face these challenges. Our programs afford outstanding educational experiences by providing our students with a better opportunity to become world citizens. Our students understand that bilingualism brings about increased opportunities and greater income-earning potential. On behalf of the Department of Modern Languages, I encourage all CSUDH students to embrace the professional advantage of learning another language. Please, let our department's dedicated faculty assist you in strengthening your future graduate school and employment opportunities by allowing you to expand your competence in language development in a welcoming environment.
