Does anyone know any universities that have master programs that in Multilingual Studies?

I would like to learn multiple languages at once and get a Masters degree. I've been searching the internet and have had no luck finding a program that teaches multilingual studies and/or Master program that has a "study aboard" opportunity to learn the language of one's choice. Any suggestions? Any feedback would be helpful at this point. Thank you!

What career opportunities exist after obtaining a degree in classical languages (Latin/Greek)?

I am currently a rising sophomore in high school going into my 4th year of studying Latin. I am on an advanced track to finish the usual sequence at my school by the end of 11th grade, after which I might consider taking college courses on the matter, and potentially major in Classics in college. My only hesitation is what to do after college: Other than the obvious (teacher/professor), what jobs exists for those with a classics degree?

Which major is better for the study of Asian Languages???

Hello, I am currently thinking about what I am going to be majoring in. I would like to be able to learn Asian languages (Japanese, Korean, etc.). I have done some research and I see there are so many options to choose from. I could major in Korean, Japanese, Asian Studies, or Linguistics. I am not sure which to choose from. I found two colleges that offer these courses, Ohio State University and Pomona College. (By the way, I mostly want to learn Korean, and I am also interested in studying abroad.)

I'm planning on studying Linguistics, and would love to learn new languages while I do so. Is there any language certifications I can get at a State level to put on my CV without having to take a class?

I'd like to learn languages without having to take a class because I can work at my own pace and study what I want in a language at any point in time. However, I feel that having a certification or award would look better on a resume than just self reporting. If you could give me ideas about what I could do, it'd be a big help. FYI: The college I'll be attending only has Linguistics as a major, with all subsections currently informal. Thank you! #languages #linguistics #certifications #resume

Can I become a psychologist/therapist in another foreign country?

I want to know if I can be or get a job as a psychologist/therapist in another foreign country. I would love to travel to another country to do what I like to do and help out others with their problems. I am mostly interested in Japan and Korea because I know there are teens who are going through stress who can't seem to seek the help or support that they need in order to overcome their stress or other problems. #psychology #school-psychology #languages #foreign

In which career in the psychology/therapy fields would ASL and foreign languages be most valued?

I speak 2 languages (including English) fluently and 3 more at varying degrees of functional fluency. One language I know that I think is particularly unique is American Sign Language, which I learned in school and at an academic summer camp. Now that I'm thinking about potential career choices in the fields of psychology and therapy, I wonder where my language skills would be most valued. I mean this in the sense of the value of being able to help a community with less resources available to them, and also in terms of the financial value this career path would have to me. Especially, I wonder if I could make a big difference by working with people in the Deaf community--are there already a lot of people doing that? I really want to work in therapy much more than in psychology, as far as that makes any difference in answering this question. Thanks in advance! #psychology #language #social-psychology #child-psychology #school-psychology #languages #moral-psychology #american-sign-language

What are possible careers that I could go into that combines language learning/traveling with a computer science degree?

I am a high school senior, and a few months ago I found out that I had been accepted into Brown University under Early Decision. I am having trouble deciding what I would like to concentrate in because I have a passion for both language learning (possibly hoping to concentrate in International Relations) and Computer Science. While I have been leaning more towards concentrating in Computer Science, I would greatly appreciate if someone could help me think of possible careers that could combine my love for language, culture, and travel, as well as computer science. Thank You! #computer-science #college-major #career-paths #career-options #languages
