Foreign Languages and Literatures, General

Do you have an "ear" for language? Are you interested in the culture of many other countries? Do you have an excellent understanding of the English language? If you have a knack for picking up the vernacular of foreign tongues, you might be the perfect candidate for a degree in foreign languages and literature.Foreign language and literature programs generally focus on multiple modern foreign languages, but do not emphasize any specific language. The curriculum taught varies from program to program and greatly depends upon what areas you wish to focus on. For instance, if your program requires you to choose three languages to study, your coursework will focus on those three languages, along with a number of general courses all foreign language and literature majors take. Degrees are offered from undergraduate through graduate levels. Courses are generally held in a typical classroom setting, though some may require observations, interviews, or engagement in research. Many programs offer a study abroad option, and some programs may conclude with an internship. A variety of career opportunities exist for those with a foreign languages and literature degree. Foreign language teachers have been in short supply for many years, so the education industry is always a viable option; however, opportunities also exist in many other fields, such as marketing, business, government, law enforcement, media, social services, or science.
