International Trade

International Trade

Program Description

The ability to work with people from other cultures is becoming ever more important, and speaking a foreign language will give you a head start in almost any field: international business, law, journalism, government, the military and more. The International Trade concentration enables the student to develop the five skills of speaking, reading, writing, listening and cultural competency in foreign languages and to pair them with studies in international economics and business. Students benefit from a wide array of study-abroad opportunities.

See Points of Pride, Put Your Degree to Work and Soaring Warhawks on the World Languages and Cultures major page.
