Caldwell University is offering a new Bachelor of Arts in Applied Language, which will include two different tracks. The Helping Professions track combines Spanish courses with psychology and sociology courses. The Public Policy track combines Spanish courses with political science and sociology courses.
Dr. Domenic Maffei, chair of the modern languages department and professor of political science, says Applied Language graduates can work in a variety of different sectors including the government, education, information and library services, nonprofits, business, public relations, international business, travel and tourism, communications, advocacy and social services.
He points out that, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, jobs will increase for health educators, community health workers and social and human services assistants.
“Both tracks in the Applied Language major prepare students in these fields.”
Maffei said the unique program is cost and time effective because it combines various fields into one major, allowing students to pursue other academic areas of interest.
Applications are now being accepted for the fall semester. To find out more email firstname.lastname@example.org.
