As a graduate of this program, you will have many unique job opportunities because of your bilingual abilities. Careers in industry (fashion, food, health care, manufacturing, etc.), government, teaching, banking and commerce, human resource management, law, international affairs, social services, intercultural communication, and hospitality are just some of the many career possibilities open to the global language graduate. Knowing another language will give you an edge in any field you choose!
Once you get past the entry-level salary of your first job, the sky is the limit! Competency in a second language and culture will earn you more money and provide travel opportunities which may not be available to your monolingual counterpart. Starting salaries in the field of teaching vary according to region. One thing is certain, multicultural education will be critical for our children's future. Other benefits such as health care, graduate school tuition, cell phones, laptop computers, and travel allowances are often part of the package for bilingual employees.
