Overview

If your first major is in the colleges of Agriculture and Life Sciences, Business, or Engineering, you may choose to take advantage of the department’s second major concentration in Languages and Cultures for Professions (LCP), which is designed to provide training in professional communication in the target language, internships, and study abroad. All of our majors and minors will increase your understanding of contemporary political, social, and cultural issues in countries and regions in which the target language is spoken. You may also pursue teacher licensure in our major language concentrations (French, German, and Spanish).

Studying world languages and cultures at Iowa State can complement a primary major in many professional fields including agriculture, business, and engineering, or better prepare you for a career in education, criminal justice, foreign service, journalism, the military, psychology and social services, or the Peace Corps.

The department will work with you to design a major or minor, including study abroad, that fits your interests and educational goals.
