Careers in Modern Languages & Literatures
Destinations around the world may be your dream, like our graduates who have worked not only teaching, but also in the Peace Corp, the United Nations, non-profits and NGOs.
Language skills contribute to success in medical professions and science fields, as employers hire candidates with strong communication skills.

Students in business careers also benefit from language skills. Several alumni have enjoyed successful careers in international business and law.
Students of languages are in high demand in the area of communications; many have gone on to become foreign correspondents, photographers, reporters, and writers.
