Imagine reading your favorite French poet in French. Or walking into a restaurant in Tokyo and ordering right off the menu. The study of world languages is your key to exploring and understanding other cultures.

Familiarity and fluency in world languages can also help you with careers abroad and here in the U.S. In addition to translation, international policy and government work, many commercial corporations have international ties, from law offices to software giants to manufacturing plants.
