What will I learn?

The program in modern languages is a natural fit if you're interested in travel, teaching, and global affairs. If you want an edge on the competition, combine this degree with a double major in business, nursing, criminal justice studies, economics, or education.

Career Path

Here's just a few jobs where you'll put the skills you learned to great use:


Communication Coordinator



Business Consultant

Social Media Strategist

Publications Manager


Develop communicative and interpersonal skills; learn how to adjust and adapt successfully to changes in a multicultural and global workplace; and explore the culture, civilization, traditions and behavior of people around the world.


The German program is the fastest growing concentration in the department. Our tight-knit community enjoys Oktoberfest together, takes classes on German horror films, and stages a full-length play in German every other spring. Summer classes in Munster and a semester program in Munich provide a once-in-a-lifetime cultural immersion experience that will complement second majors in marketing, criminal justice studies, and computer science.
