Bachelor of Arts in World Languages and Studies

Further study in literature, history, philosophy, government and law, and sociology provide a holistic experience, and prepares students for various study abroad opportunities. Students will be ready to pursue a variety of career opportunities or graduate studies, both domestic and abroad.

With globalization comes increased employment opportunities for those with a foreign language degree. A bachelor’s degree in world languages opens doors to international opportunities in business, education, travel, the arts, humanitarian work and more. Employment of interpreters and translators is projected to grow at a much faster rate than the average for all occupations.

Some characteristics of professionals in world language careers include a high level of proficiency in both English and another language, cultural competence, excellent listening skills and emotional resilience.
