Modern Languages & Literatures Department
Support the study of languages and cultures!

Donations to the Department of Modern Languages and Literatures play a vital role in helping our department expand its mission and retain its position as a center of excellence for the study of languages and cultures. Gifts from our supporters help us provide more resources for language teaching, support for academic programs and curricular innovations, and most importantly, fund scholarships and internship opportunities for our students.


"During my second year at Santa Clara, I was feeling out of place in college, thus I longed to rejuvenate my passion for learning. Declaring a Spanish Major is the best decision I could have made. Not only did my motivation for school re-ignite, but I became more knowledgeable about the world around me, wiser in my thinking and I have met incredibly welcoming individuals.

The Modern Languages Department has made me feel at home while at SCU, a place where my identity as a First-Generation Mexican-American College student was finally valued and appreciated."

– Gloria Sevilla '20
