Why Major in a Language?

Language learning is a tangible way to serve others. The DMCL will help you become a bridge-builder of many countries.

More and more businesses work closely with companies in other countries. They need workers who can communicate in different languages and understand other cultures. A person who knows two or more languages can work successfully with many more people and in many more places than someone who knows only one language! No matter your career path, you will multiply your chances for success if you speak more than one language. An employer will see you as a bridge to new clients or customers if you know a second language.
