Global Cultures: History, Languages & Philosophy

History, Languages and Philosophy

We offer majors and minors in Spanish, philosophy and history. Courses you can take include U.S. history, European and world history and Spanish and French language and culture.

What we do now is just the start of a new outlook on globalization at Wilkes. Join us!

Study Abroad

We offer annual study abroad options that range from weeklong study tours to semesters and summers abroad. Our Spanish and history clubs offer the chance to mingle with students sharing similar interests, and the history and Hispanic honor societies recognize achievements in those majors.
