Language and International Trade

The foreign trade concentration is an interdisciplinary program designed for students contemplating a career in international trade.

The objectives of the program are twofold:
(1) to give students a thorough knowledge of the language and people of another country;
(2) to equip them with skills to find employment in the international sector.

Two departments participate in this program, Modern Languages and Economics. The International Trade Concentration is available to students majoring in either of these areas. In addition to meeting the major requirements, Economics majors must take twenty-four hours in one foreign langauge, or twelve hours each in two different foreign languages. Language majors must take twenty-four hours in Economics of which six hours must be Eco 101 and 200. The remaining eighteen hours in Economics must be selected under advisement by the Economics Department and will be based on the specific career objectives of the student.
