Fluency in a foreign language is an in-demand job skill. In 2019, a survey conducted by the American Council on the Teaching of Foreign Languages (ACTFL) found that 9 out of 10 U.S. employers rely on employees with language skills other than English.
One out of three employers reports that they do not have enough people with this skill and one out of four reports that they lost business due to a lack of foreign language skills.
With as many as 56% of employers expecting an increased demand for employees who know foreign languages, adding a language major or minor will set you apart and make you more marketable.
You can learn any or all of the five languages most in demand at SCSU: Spanish, Chinese, French, Japanese and German.
