Modern Languages and Literatures - Life After Fairfield

With the broad liberal education that all Fairfield students acquire, plus command of a foreign language, modern language majors have launched their careers in a wide range of organizations and enterprises. International corporations headquartered in New York City and Fairfield County have sought out recent graduates who are familiar with a European or Asian language and culture.

Banks, airlines, investment companies, and travel agencies are among the employers of recent graduates. Some alumni have gone into secondary teaching or have opted for work with social service agencies. Others have gone on to graduate or professional study, such as business and law schools, and various Ph.D. programs.

A number of language majors have received Fulbright grants to teach or conduct research overseas.
