Careers

 

Luther students who have specialized in foreign language study have found this background helpful in moving into many careers. When language is developed as a primary skill, students are usually preparing for careers in government work, international business, or teaching. Language skills, combined with other areas of concentration, can complement virtually any career preparation.

Recent language graduates have pursued careers in law, library science, social work, bilingual education, counseling, and the ministry. Others are engaged in business-related careers in banking, management, accounting, and tourism. Some graduates are working with government agencies (e.g., customs, intelligence work, diplomatic service), while others are continuing their study and research in graduate school.
