When I was in high school, I knew I wanted to attend a college that had strong academics, recreational opportunities and lots of different ways to get involved. I also wanted to attend a university that was committed to the environment and the community, and I felt like all of these things were important at Mount Union.
In our global society, a knowledge of other languages, cultures and traditions is increasingly important, and this understanding is sought by employers across our nation and around the world. Our foreign language minor offers the opportunity for students to make themselves more marketable in our global society and will prepare them for careers in a variety of fields.
Foreign language graduates have found success working in organizations including the Paper of Thomas Jefferson, Management Science Associates and Conrad Hilton Foundation and World Vision.
The minor in Foreign Language is administered by the Department of Foreign Languages and Cultures, which also offers programs in Spanish, Chinese, French, German and Japanese.
