Welcome!

Studying a Language will improve your analytic and interpretive capacities, and years of its study will catch the eye of anyone reading your job or college application.

No matter what career you choose, if you have learned a language, you will have a real advantage.

Knowing more than one language enhances opportunities in government, business, law enforcement, social services, teaching, health care, technology, marketing, the military, and many more fields.

Learning a language will make you see the world in a different light, and that world will also see you differently.


LANGUAGES

Majoring in a language may lead to positions in teaching, research, journalism, government, or business. Languages are a valuable asset to scientists, historians, lawyers, sales persons, musicians, travelers — in fact, to almost anyone. Language study affords new perspectives on the world and on one’s mother tongue. It is intriguing to read or to see newspapers, magazines, websites, poems, and stories in American Sign Language, Arabic, French, Mandarin Chinese, or Spanish. Communication, access, and job opportunities are expanded and enhanced by learning a languge.
