When you major in the Romance Languages and Literatures at St. Thomas Aquinas College, you’ll explore literature, language, culture, and linguistics, leading to language proficiency and insight into world cultures. You’ll master the Spanish, French, and Italian languages and have opportunities to practice those languages by studying abroad or, closer to home, in our Italian Club, and at our foreign movie and game nights. Our students also take college trips to Ellis Island, and The Metropolitan Museum of Art.

The Languages with a Business Focus track will allow you to combine your interest in and/or facility with a foreign language with a sequence of selected business courses to create a program that employers desire: someone with a degree and training in the area of business and a sophisticated competency in another language.  It is widely known that all businesses are increasingly global in their approach, and so the need for speakers of foreign languages is on the rise.  This combined major will prepare you to help your future employer compete on a rapidly changing business landscape.

Careers For Romance Languages Majors

  • Proficiency in foreign languages will help you find employment in business, travel and tourism, government, law, public health, marketing, public relations, technology, healthcare, media, and education. 
  • Many Romance Language majors also go on to earn advanced degrees or teacher certification. 
  • The Romance Languages with Business Focus prepares you in a much more specific, carefully directed way – especially with the kinds of internship opportunities we can offer.

Programme Structure

  • The Languages and Literatures track will give you the opportunity to combine your interest in and/or facility with a foreign language with your interest in reading and studying the great literature of other cultures. You will take courses which explore the study of literature, language, culture, and linguistics -- valuable concepts that will lead to a development of language proficiency and a discovery of the cultures of areas of the world where these languages are spoken.
  • The new skill set that students will need goes well beyond the United States' current focus on the basics and on math, science, and technology. These skills are necessary, of course, but to be successful global citizens, workers, and leaders, students will need to be knowledgeable about the world, be able to communicate in languages other than English, and be informed and active citizens.
