World Languages: Transfer

Students who study world languages begin a path of lifelong learning of languages and culture. World languages introduce students to the larger global community and offer them the skills to communicate effectively in that larger arena by mastering the four major language skills: listening, speaking, reading and writing.

UCC World Languages Dept. offers students the opportunity to study abroad through an immersion experience.

Careers

Studying a foreign language broadens your perspective of the world, while teaching you the value of other peoples and cultures. The study of a foreign language strengthens and reinforces critical thinking and fosters patience and perseverance, valuable skills in today's workplace.

Students studying world languages enhance their career possibilities, often combining World Languages with other career fields such as Business, International Relations, Journalism, Law, Medicine and Tourism. In today's global market, "bilingual" on your resume gives you a head start to a brilliant future!

Transfer Guide

Majors in World Languages are offered at UO, OSU, PSU, SOU, EOU, and WOU. UCC offers programs of study which are approved for transfer to these institutions.
