Great Value Colleges is a proud supporter of expanding your educational horizons, especially if that means learning a new language or getting a foreign language degree. Foreign language study can be a lucrative choice for students. Not only does majoring or minoring in a foreign language open opportunities for teaching, translating, and interpreting, but employees are also often paid more if they can speak a second language. Of all of the corporations in the United States, one-third are either owned or based abroad and, in many companies, schools, and sectors of the government, the demand for foreign language skills is so high, that student loan forgiveness is often available upon employment.
So, if you’re into saving money, pick up a major or minor in a foreign language, and let Great Value Colleges help pay the way.
