A foreign language major or minor opens the door to a world of opportunities.  These days, knowledge of a second language can provide you with job-related knowledge and skills that can give you a competitive edge.  Whether you’re working in the private sector or in public service, communicating and investigating knowledge (and information) in a second language is beneficial in an increasingly international workplace.  Today’s graduates with foreign language skills are employed in Business, Communications, International Law and Government Service to name a few.  Many utilize their language skills to serve as Foreign News Correspondents, International Relations Specialists, Global News Translators, and Foreign Service Officers.  Graduates who combine their language skills with business are finding careers as Global Trade Specialists, with positions in management, marketing, and trade.  Additionally, graduates in today’s market place are finding positions with software and web-service developers, the international film industry, the FBI, CIA, US Customs and Immigration, and the US Postal Service, all of who value the abilities and unique qualities that foreign language majors and minors bring to the work place.
