Career Opportunities in Foreign Language

The Bachelor of Arts in Foreign Language strengthens graduates' preparedness to work in global communications, marketing, public relations, and management; foreign aid and development; journalism; education; foreign service; international affairs, immigration services and the Peace Corps; organizations involved in development, disaster relief, immigration, human rights, and environmental justice advocacy; business and management in a multicultural environment. Graduates of our program will also find opportunities in teaching at home or abroad, as well as in work with a variety of public-service organizations. This degree also provides an excellent background and qualification for admission to graduate degree programs in foreign languages, international studies, international law, diplomacy, business, or journalism.

We encourage students to double major in Foreign Language and another major in the School of World Studies such as Anthropology, International Studies or Religious Studies. Doing so strengthens cumulative knowledge, experience, academic record, and resume for success in whatever path they choose after graduation.
