The School of Modern Languages collaborates as an interdisciplinary partner with other units in the Ivan Allen College and across Georgia Tech to prepare future participants in the global workforce through applied studies in foreign languages. Students develop advanced communication skills, creative thinking, and professional competency in a language(s) through courses and extracurricular opportunities that focus on current issues, literature, business applications, and cross-cultural perspectives. In addition to its joint degree programs, the School offers minors and certificates.
Modern Languages graduates most often work for internationally oriented organizations and companies. Students with these degrees go into business, non-profit, or government service; a substantial number proceed to graduate school. Students are especially competitive in the workforce because of their dual abilities in language and a professional discipline.
