Tonight: Spanish Studies Career Networking Event

Why study Spanish language and culture? Want to know how to boost your career potential and earning power? Join the Department of Classical and Modern Languages and Cultures for a virtual networking session March 11 (tonight!) at 7:00pm. We have invited John Carroll graduates to share their stories of how their language study has given them advantages in their post-graduate career and educational pursuits.
This is a great opportunity to connect with JCU grads in fields you may be interested in. Our alumni guests are ready to discuss how they combined Spanish with other academic interests, and how the skills acquired through the study of language can open career and educational pathways.
