More About This Degree

This is just a sample of our Modern Languages faculty - see them all!

Fluency in a modern language is obviously essential to the language teacher, translator or interpreter, but whatever your professional pursuits, you'll have an advantage with modern language skills. From multinational corporations and import-export firms to international hotels and airlines, American businesses deal with speakers of other languages. In addition, many modern companies with offices in the United States hire Americans with the ability to communicate in both English and the language of their home country. Governmental agencies whether on a federal, state or local level offer a nearly unlimited range of options. Exciting careers may await you in the Foreign Service, the State Department, Customs and Immigration, Border Patrol, intelligence agencies or perhaps the U.S. Armed Forces. As a teacher, social worker, dietitian, journalist, law enforcement officer or in scores of other professions knowledge of another language is a distinct advantage.
