Aurora’s Answer

A foreign language will be an asset no matter what career path you choose. In addition to learning a language, you will also learn about the culture and history of the language you are studying (intercultural competence). A foreign language can be useful for careers in/at international business/corporations, international politics/economics, tech corporations, medicine, chemistry, engineering, government, etc. (This also means that the study of a foreign language pairs well with any of the above majors, plus many more.) If you are thinking about graduate school - having a second or third language (even if you can only read it) is almost always an advantage.

Also, you can investigate job boards like Indeed to see just how in-demand some languages are. I have seen listings recently that require/prefer applicants proficient in languages like Korean, Mandarin, Spanish, and German - among many others.

Anything dealing with being a learned person in any field that requires knowledge and skill has its benefits. During the few months to a year where you can take off you can travel and go research and teach in different regions and places. Your major benefit is employment all over the world. Your greatest benefit is arming the youth with strategies, methods and self empowerment.
