Become a Global Citizen!    

You don't need to be a language major to devolop language fluency and cultural competence that will make you marketable in a global environment. Students in any major can integrate their language studies into their major program to create new opportunities. For example, political science majors with French proficiency can study at the prestigious Institut d'Etudes Politiques in Lyon through our exchange program, gaining new perspectives on world politics, or with advanced Spanish proficiency, they can complete an international internship at the city hall in Rosario, Argentina, learning first hand how government works in that country.
