The Modern Languages curricula of The Claremont Colleges are based on intercollegiate cooperative arrangements among the five Claremont Colleges. As part of these arrangements, students may register for lower-division language courses at any of The Claremont Colleges, provided the courses have not been closed to further registration. Although Pitzer students normally enroll in courses at their own college, they may register at any of the other four colleges if scheduling requires, or when the specific course is not offered at Pitzer.

Language, literature and culture are the essential components of this interdisciplinary field group which places emphasis on oral and written expression and critical thinking. The field group brings together faculty with expertise in broad areas of international studies. The Modern Languages, Literature and Cultures Field Group offers a major in Spanish. The Claremont Colleges Coordinated Modern Languages Program provides courses in Chinese, French, German, Italian, Japanese, Korean, Russian, and Spanish. The field group also offers courses in Spanish literature and culture and in writing, in English language studies. For English and other world literature in translation, see English and World Literature.
