Key facts

The Applied Language and Intercultural Studies degree program at Georgia Institute of Technology (Georgia Tech) is more than language study. As an international institution located in the global hub that is Atlanta, Georgia Tech sits at the intersection of global culture and innovation. Our degree recognizes that it is no longer enough to learn a new language if it is not accompanied with applicable skills for emerging industries, real-world problem-solving, and sustainable development. The B.S. in ALIS takes an intercultural and interdisciplinary approach that trains students in their language concentration, as well as in linguistics, literature, media, cultural studies, comparative analysis, and critical awareness.

The B.S. in ALIS program is designed around the cultural perspectives, industry knowledge, humanities skills, and technological innovation required to participate and thrive in the current competitive global market. By coupling advanced language skills with intercultural competence, ALIS majors are positioned to work in a variety of fields that include: local and national government; non-profits and NGOs; healthcare and medicine; international business, law, and trade; global affairs and public policy; new media development and web design; journalism, marketing, and advertising.
