The work environment for someone who is a world language and culture major can vary, depending on the field chosen. The business or health side could involve long hours and sitting for long periods of time, whereas the foreign policy or cultural side could involve being active for long periods of time and conducting interviews and working irregular hours.
The classes that center around this major are based on understanding, comprehending, and being able to successfully interpret, speak, and read foreign languages. In Reinhardt's degree program, you will focus either on French and Spanish, or a combination of the two. Higher-level classes will introduce you not only to the language(s), but the culture and rich history of the people who speak them as well.
