World Languages, A.A. - Business and Economics Pathway


Return to Humanities  

Programs Offered:

  • Associate of Arts, Pathway - World Languages
  • Associate of Arts, Pathway - World Languages with Business and Economics

The study of World Languages enables students to communicate in languages other than English to gain knowledge and understanding of other cultures and to participate in multilingual communities at home and around the world. World language skills enable students to communicate in a global and culturally diverse society.

Studying world languages enhances your contribution as a member of the global marketplace. Whatever career you choose, your success will depend on your ability to communicate in culturally diverse environments. The ability to speak another language is an asset in business, medical fields and service occupations. Combining a world language degree with a degree in another field expands a student’s potential for success.

Perimeter College offers the widest range of world language courses of any associate degree-granting college in the Southeast.
