The study of other languages, literatures and cultures not only provides important perspective on the world, but also sharpens analytical and reasoning skills, deepens understanding of English, and enhances the quality of your writing. A graduate degree in languages deepens that knowledge of languages and cultures, improves your research skills and can secure you a higher-paying career.
Linguistic and broadly-based cultural studies provide an excellent grounding for various professional programs, including law, business, medicine or health sciences, teaching at the high school or university level, library and information science, and museum practice. You might also get an M.A. before continuing into a Ph.D. program.
