A Bachelor of Arts degree is an undergraduate program that is designed to give students a wide-ranging education focused on the study of the liberal arts. A diverse variety of electives combined with core subjects and courses associated with the student’s own major make up the required curriculum.

What is a BA in Other Languages? As digital and technological advancements continue to make the world a smaller place, the ability to communicate across cultures has become a prized skill. Professionals with a knack for learning other languages may find this major a perfect fit and the jump-starter for an exciting possible career path. Coursework likely will include cultural history, linguistics, phonetics, literature and conversation. Many students choose to spend a semester studying abroad.

Students earning a BA in Other Languages attain the invaluable skill of communicating, but the major offers other benefits as well. Becoming adept at a second language usually enhances an individual’s ability to write and speak more clearly in his or her own language. Program participants also commonly develop an enhanced understanding and empathy toward other cultures.

Costs of attaining a BA in Other Languages will vary depending on the choice of institution. Many universities worldwide offer this degree, and the local cost of living—beyond the tuition—is another factor to consider.

The job market for graduates with a BA in Other Languages is both robust and diverse, offering a myriad of potential career paths depending on an individual’s interests. Students may opt for careers in the fields of education, business, healthcare, government, tourism or nonprofit agencies. Typical jobs for which graduates with this degree may qualify include foreign language teacher, researcher, business and government consultant, translator, interpreter, nonprofit advocate and tourism official.

Learning and immersing oneself in a non-native language is an idea that is growing in its appeal. Search for your program below and contact directly the admission office of the school of your choice by filling in the lead form.
