Become a Citizen of the World
Multilingual communication opens doors around the world that for many English-only
speakers stay closed. But it’s more than just conversation. It’s the study of others’ history
and art, a means to enhance listening skills and creativity, and an opportunity to develop a
deeper understanding of another culture and your own.
Stand Out in the Job Market
What will set you apart from other candidates? In a global economy and an evolving
American cultural landscape, multilingualism will leap off your resume. Check out our
Careers page to learn more about the professional options across a variety of industries that
await you after graduation.
Take Your Skills Abroad
We encourage MCL majors and minors to spend a semester abroad immersing themselves
in the unique customs and day-to-day cultural experiences that wait beyond our borders.
Applying your skills outside of the classroom – and the U.S. – is vital to mastering the
nuances and intricacies of a new language.
