KPU offers a variety of language courses (French, Japanese, Mandarin, Punjabi, and Spanish) as well as Linguistics and Culture (LANC) courses (conducted in English).  The Department of Language and Cultures offers a BA Minor in Language and Culture.

Taking courses in the Department of Language and Cultures will give you a richer understanding of diverse cultures and an increased awareness of language and communication.  Our courses will also bring you marketable skills and employment opportunities.

Our department offers smaller class sizes for language courses to optimize student participation, and our dedicated and experienced faculty members are committed to providing a rewarding learning experience through student-centered teaching styles. We also provide additional individual attention and support through conversation labs for first and second-year language courses (conversation labs are only offered in Japanese, Mandarin, and Punjabi courses).


We offer the following language, Culture Studies and Linguistics courses:
