The Department of Romance Languages

Students of French, Italian, Portuguese, and Spanish study language, linguistics, culture, and literature in a collaborative atmosphere at UGA.  Our faculty have expertise that extends from the Middle Ages to current twenty-first century trends and our courses explore the structures and meanings of expression and representation from the roots of the Mediterranean world through present-day Europe, Latin America, the Caribbean, Africa, and North America. 


The Department of Romance Languages is committed to linguistic diversity and our programs are pluralistic and interdisciplinary, engaging students in lively conversations that draw connections between languages, people, regions, and fields of inquiry.
