Department of Modern Languages It’s an exciting time to be involved with the Department of Modern Languages at Fort Hays State University. On the forefront of the university’s “Forward Thinking. World Ready.” tagline, our department serves students by preparing them to face —and succeed — in a fast-changing and, above all, highly interconnected world. We offer majors and minors in Spanish and German, with additional coursework in other important languages. All four of our language offerings — Spanish, German, Chinese, and French — can also be used as a significant component to the new Minor in Global Competencies, a university-wide offering that can complement any major offered at FHSU. The Department of Modern Languages implements the university’s global campaign by offering study abroad opportunities, with accompanying Study Abroad Certificates that are available to all students, regardless of major.
The history of Fort Hays State University is one of substantial growth, extraordinary individuals and ambitious goals. The future of what is yet to come looks even more exciting.

Every dollar contributed will make a difference—every single dollar! Leading Fort Hays State has been the most challenging and rewarding work of my 47-year career, and I hope you’ll join me in stepping up to the plate to support our Power of One scholarship campaign.” —Dr. Edward H.
