Assessment Plan

Programs in the Department of Modern & Classical Languages (MCL) encompass the languages, literatures, and cultures of a wide range of non-English-speaking communities. MCL plays an important role in promoting international understanding and the internationalization of the UW curriculum.

Majors in the Department should attain three learning goals as they complete their degrees. For each goal, we have identified one or more learning outcomes, each representing something tangible which the student should know or be able to do as a result of completing one of our undergraduate programs.
