Graduate Success

A major in languages, including German, is a valuable asset for a variety of careers and prepares students for life in a global world. Some graduates of the Languages Department focus exclusively on a job that utilizes the languages they have studied, while others use their language background as an asset to apply for a position more closely aligned to their second major field of study or continue their education.

Recent German graduates have attended or are attending graduate school at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, Pennsylvania State University at University Park, Duquesne University, Middlebury College, and the University of Würzburg in Germany. Several others are teaching at high schools from Pennsylvania to Kentucky. Language majors are in high demand in many fields, including education, diplomatic and government service, international trade and management, business and social services, international banking, and the travel industry.
