            World Languages & Cultures Minor

            Become a bilingual Bulldog.

            Your chances of making that business deal, working with non-governmental organizations, launching a globally focused career, or gaining admittance to a prestigious grad school will increase if you have a deep understanding of a language and culture outside your own.

            Stand out

            A language minor will prepare you to do meaningful work—regardless of borders— and be an asset in any career you pursue. Learning a new language (and perhaps going abroad for some hands-on application) will allow you to adapt to unfamiliar situations, problem-solve, and communicate—very appealing characteristics to employers.

            Speak and understand

            We believe it is impossible to truly learn a language without also understanding it in context. Our language minors focus on five key skills: reading, writing, listening, speaking, and cultural understanding. Increased competence comes not only from experiences abroad—which are optional, but encouraged—but also by working with native speakers on campus and in the community.

            Drake’s Department of World Languages and Cultures works closely with other departments across campus, allowing you to embed language study into your major.

            A world of opportunities

            Drake excels at connecting students to unique opportunities both locally and abroad. WLC students have worked in Peruvian health clinics, volunteered with leprosy patients in Costa Rica, and put their language skills to work with immigrants right here in Des Moines.

            Current students can be found around the world every semester. Learn more about Drake study abroad program through firsthand student experiences about exploring or adventuring in .

            Committed to your success

            Bulldogs hold many positions around the globe—running tour groups in Latin America, teaching literature in Taiwan, and working in U.S. ambassadors’ offices abroad, among many other positions.

            Of course, you’ll benefit from the experiences that all Drake Bulldogs enjoy—mentorship from professors at the top of their field; résumé-worthy internships, research experiences, and other professional preparation; opportunities to learn while serving the community; and January Term experiences, at no additional tuition cost, that immerse you into the fascinating topics—and locations—you choose.
