Associate of Applied Science Degree Program
Students who study foreign languages begin a path of lifelong learning of languages and culture. Foreign languages introduce students to the larger global community and offer them the skills to communicate effectively in that larger arena by mastering the four major language skills: listening, speaking, reading and writing.
Studying a foreign language broadens your perspective of the world, while teaching you the value of other peoples and cultures. The study of a foreign language strengthens and reinforces critical thinking and fosters patience and perseverance, valuable skills in today's workplace.
Students studying foreign languages enhance their career possibilities, often combining Foreign Languages with other career fields such as Business, International Relations, Journalism, Law, Medicine and Tourism. In today's global market, "bilingual" on your resume gives you a head start to a brilliant future!
