World Language Studies Welcomes You to New Experiences

Through the study of foreign languages, students acquire both linguistic skills and an understanding of the literature, history, and culture of people around the world.

Students also come to view their own culture in a more critical light. Language study is thus extremely valuable in the real world, leading to fulfilling careers and enriched lives.

“The language industry is regularly cited as one of the fastest-growing sectors of the U.S. economy, on a par with nursing…Employment of interpreters and translators is projected to grow 46 percent from 2012 to 2022, much faster than the average for all occupations” (Bauer, Brian J. 2015. “Translation and Beyond.” NewsNet 55.5)
