Alumni

Our graduating students have frequently been the recipients of the College of Arts and Science’s top convocation awards for academic excellence in the Humanities as well as being awarded the College of Arts and Science’s highest awards for academic distinction throughout the entire College. Many of them have moved on to further excel in graduate studies or rewarding careers in a broad range of fields such as further language study, education, library sciences, law, public policy, politics, business, journalism, world development or work abroad in key organizations such as the European Union. In many cases, the mastery of foreign languages has opened doors for them to work in other countries where they have built rewarding professional and personal lives as a result of their studies in languages.
