Majors and Minors

romance languages and literatures

Boston College offers majors and minors in French, Hispanic Studies, and Italian.

The major offers solid preparation and guidance for students interested in teaching or in graduate studies, as well as in many diverse fields such as law, medicine, interpreting, and international business, to name only a few. To learn of the, in fact, numerous areas of employment in which mastery of a second language and culture gives you valuable, necessary skills and, indeed, a competitive edge, see Foreign Languages Careers. The same page offers links to published reports of the ever growing amount of scientific evidence proving the great benefit to one's cognitive and creative development that learning a second language brings.

Please contact the Director of Undergraduate Studies with any questions.
