Modern and Classical Languages and Literatures
Where can a language degree take you?
Driven by a globalized economy and more diversity in the United States, employment opportunities for language students have hardly been better. In fact, employment of interpreters and translators is projected to grow by 46 percent between now and 2022, according to the Bureau of Labor and Statistics. But our students can do much more considering the need for language professionals in business, industry, and politics.
The Department of Modern and Classical Languages and Literatures is dedicated to the study of six languages and their associated literatures and cultures. Our students study the world through literature, politics, media, history--all to better understand the unique dynamics and rich depth of another people and place.
