Foreign Languages

Why Take a Foreign Language?

The command of a foreign language is not only essential in many career fields, but necessary in order to compete for jobs in today's globalized society.

Even if your major does not have a foreign language requirement, students are encouraged to take foreign language classes in order to expand their global awareness and increase their competitive edge in the job market.
