At Queen’s we firmly believe that adding a language into a degree in a separate discipline is always an asset, since it gives you linguistic skills which are valued by employers across all sectors of the job market, and also because it gives you an opportunity to work or to study abroad. For employers, someone who has a track record of living and working in different cultures and the rich life experiences that go with this immediately stands out from his or her peers. They bring a different (international) perspective to discussions, and have shown an ability to adapt to and forge connections in a society where they are not a native speaker, and have been open to expanding their horizons: these are huge assets in an increasingly globalized environment.
