The world is tied together by many bonds—economic, diplomatic and human—and because of technological advances in transportation and communication, an increasing number of Americans rely on the knowledge of a foreign language. Studying German contributes significantly to the improvement of international relations.

Graduates have found jobs in teaching, translating, foreign diplomacy, foreign correspondence, travel agencies, international airlines, import-export work, international corporations, and in agencies of the federal government. While graduates with skills and backgrounds only in foreign languages may encounter keen competition for jobs, as a supplement to other skills the knowledge of a foreign language is a valuable professional commodity.
