Employment After Graduation

Ashley Thiel and Monica Bixby

Weak US job market? We're off to Spain!

2011 graduates, Ashley Thiel and Monica Bixby, are heading to Spain this September to further their foreign language experience. Ashley will be teaching high school English in El País Vasco, while Monica's role will be that of a Language and Culture Assistant in Madrid. Previously, the girls had met with D. Jesús Álvarez, director of the Education Office of the Embassy of Spain, at Marywood.

AS LUDWIG WITTGENSTEIN SAID, "The limits of my language mean the limits of world". A DEGREE IN FOREIGN LANGUAGE MAKES YOU A CITIZEN OF THE WORLD. EXPAND YOUR HORIZONS AT MARYWOOD.

Your Future, Your Degree

Businesses, governments, social service agencies and schools seek employees who are fluent in a second language and reward them financially. Enjoy a competitive edge by majoring or minoring in a foreign language at Marywood University.

Ninety percent of graduates from Marywood University's Foreign Language Program are currently employed using their language skills.

Many foreign language graduates pursue teaching careers. Over the past five years, 100 percent of Marywood University's foreign language secondary education majors have secured teaching positions their first year after graduation.

Student Success Stories

ADDED SKILLS = ADDED DOLLARS, PESOS, EUROS, ETC.

Much more than the extra pay our students often receive for their extra talents is the satisfaction of being able to help others. Regardless of your major, a Foreign Language Minor makes sense (and cents!).

Not only did I immediately find employment, but my paycheck reflects the recognition of my superior skills.

Weak US job market? We're off to Spain!

We have traveled the world because of our languages!

Congratulations to our Foreign Language graduates!
