MODL Advantage


The Department of Modern Languages (MODL) is committed to UTA’s initiative—the Maverick Advantage—which provides undergraduate students with a competitive edge by connecting them with the University’s experiential learning ecosystem. Our MODL Advantage offers students experience with the Five Distinguishing Activities of the Maverick Advantage:

  • Leadership
  • Undergraduate Research
  • Global Connections
  • Community Engagement
  • Career Preparedness

We invite students to participate in these experiential learning opportunities to enhance their career preparedness, dedication to lifelong learning, and appreciation of a diverse and inclusive community.


Leadership

Lead with Languages! MODL students have a variety of leadership opportunties, including:


Undergraduate Research

MODL is committed to supporting UTA’s research programs, including ACES (Annual Celebration of Excellence by Students), the Honors College, and the McNair Scholars Program. Several of our faculty members have mentored students in research projects associated with these endeavors.

Moreover, the department holds its very own Cultural Constructions Conference every two years. Undergraduate students have an opportunity to further develop projects and present their research among their peers, professors, and community partners in a conference setting.

For individual research projects led by MODL faculty, please contact the department Chair, Dr. Sonia Kania.


Global Connections

Go Bold | Go Global with MODL. We offer various faculty-led study abroad programs, which provide students the opportunity to immerse themselves in another culture, enhancing their global competence.

See descriptions on the individual program pages for the following languages:


Community Engagement

MODL has a strong track record of providing students with service learning and other community engagement opportunities.
