Video: What You Can Do With a Language Major

Hear from three alumni who majored in German, Italian, and Spanish about how their majors impacted their career path.

You won't want to miss this conversation about how one grad chose to major in German because he wanted to study abroad, only to find his study abroad experience ignite a passion for work in energy and sustainability. Or about another grad who took an intensive Italian course to get the language requirement out of the way, only to be inspired by the language enough to study abroad in Italy where she met her husband of 15 years. Or about a grad who was on the pre-med path before taking a Spanish for Heritage Speakers class, only to find her home in the Spanish Department later becoming an immigration attorney using her Spanish every day in her work with asylum seekers.
