The Department of Modern Languages and Literatures offers courses in Arabic, Chinese, French, German, Italian, Japanese, Russian and Hispanic languages, literatures and cultures. Integral to these programs are the "Languages Houses," where resident native speakers, or International Fellows, encourage active use of their native languages and assist student residents in organizing and/or supporting cultural activities that include but are not limited to, weekly conversation hours for different levels of student speakers, foreign film nights, cultural celebrations, cooking classes, and sports competitions between Houses. Students in these houses are expected to speak the target language in their normal social encounters in the house. The International Fellow has educational/cultural, public relations/liaison, and administrative responsibilities while living in the House. The Fellow will work with the Faculty Advisor to coordinate House activities that meet the needs of the residents and extend the academic curriculum of the program. The Fellow may be asked to assist the language section in organizing receptions for visiting speakers or artists, lectures, film studies, dinners, study abroad orientations and other joint events held either in the House, on campus or in the community. The International Fellow is expected to work at the minimum of 20 hours and no more than 29 hours per week as per state policy.
The Department is recruiting a pool of persons for possible part-time International Fellow positions for Italian Studies Program. This pool will be accessed ONLY when an opening arises.
