Perhaps you want to explore working internationally, or with a domestic company that has global partners. In all of these cases, a major or minor in English, Spanish or French can provide the foundation.

In the liberal arts tradition, the Walsh University Languages & Letters Division stresses critical thinking with an emphasis on the significance of language, literature and writing. With this as the basis for instruction, we weave in critical skills for today's careers.
