Career – what can you do with a world language education degree?
BGSU world language students receive valuable field experience as early as freshman year. Early classroom exposure gives you insight into the kind of teaching you want to pursue.
BGSU hosts one of the country’s largest teacher job fairs. It is sponsored by the Michael and Sara Kuhlin Hub for Career Design and Connections.
Nearly 90% of BGSU world language education graduates report they're employed, in graduate school or starting a business within six months of graduation.
Most BGSU graduates become world language teachers in the U.S., typically in the Midwest and Southeast. Some graduate and then live abroad, teaching English through the Fulbright program or other programs such as Teach for Spain. Others have continued their education, earning master’s degrees in linguistics or their world language.

- Enhance your existing language skills
