The Casper College Department of World Languages facilitates student success in language acquisition and cultural competency through classes and activities so that students flourish in a diverse global society.

In addition to beginning and intermediate language courses in German, French, Russian and Spanish; the department regularly offers opportunities for short term study-abroad experiences. These trips are focused on cultural awareness and improving students’ target language skills (basic skills are a prerequisite).

In recent years instructors have traveled with students to Mexico, Germany/Czech Republic, and France/Martinique!
