The foreign languages taught at Snow College are Chinese, French, Italian, Japanese, Korean (one semester, online), and Spanish. The study of a foreign language includes the language plus its cultures, civilization, literature, and instruction in effective communication via written and oral modes.

Foreign language majors study the language as a vehicle of personal, academic, and professional expression in a variety of contexts appropriate to the cultures where the language is spoken. They study the people who speak the language, and they investigate attitudes, behaviors, and histories through a variety of media and through interaction with native speakers, or advanced non-native speakers, and texts. Majors also read and write extensively in the foreign language.

Students often combine a foreign language major with a secondary major, thus increasing their career potential.
