At Suffolk, you’ll study locally and think globally. We are a multidisciplinary department – students and specialists in language, literature, art and cultural studies exchange ideas here every day. Many students choose to study abroad to further broaden their perspectives and gain a deeper understanding of our world.

Graduates with degrees in World Languages and Cultural Studies have many options. Some enroll in Law School or pursue advanced graduate studies. Others work with non-governmental organizations or are hired by multinational corporations as interpreters, translators or in other capacities. Some enter politics or serve in the diplomatic corps, while still others engage in social activism and act as liaisons between the US and the rest of the world.
