What is a course in modern languages? A course is a specialized study program that offers students concentrated knowledge on a subject related to their goals. The modern languages program provides participants with specialized knowledge of business languages and customs.

Participants gain appropriate language skills, familiarity with customs and knowledge of business terms in order to communicate and behave successfully in the global business arena or in international relations work.

Each institution will have its own cost and duration requirements for the modern languages program, so students will need to check coursework descriptions. Cost also will vary for each school. Interested students should research each institution to ensure they understand course requirements.
