Undergraduate Pathway in Language Studies

Top 5 Undergraduate Pathways in Language Studies 2018

For international students seeking undergraduate education abroad, a pathway program offers an entrance opportunity. This one-year program prepares students for university by teaching a variety of subjects along with English fluency, with the credits transferable to admission at the host institution.

What is an undergraduate pathway in language studies? This program introduces scholars to the principles of a language studies major, developing competence in a chosen language as well as an understanding of the fundamentals of human language and its use. Often multidisciplinary in nature, the curriculum may cover the cultural context of the language and how this affects its development and use in practice. Courses can be structured for entry skill levels ranging from no prior experience to any level of certification.

Those taking an undergraduate pathway in language studies can build or enhance their fluency in reading, writing and speaking a foreign language. Along with this, the courses develop an understanding of how language is constructed, both in terms of structure and culture, and can help learners improve their writing skills more broadly.

Completing an undergraduate pathway program in language studies often takes a year of full-time study; the tuition costs vary from one institution to another but reflect the duration of the program. Interested parties should contact the school in question to find more information.

Following the pathway program and the full degree in a language studies major, graduates can expect opportunities in various careers abroad. Writing careers are a strong option, ranging from journalists reporting from other countries to editors, translators and publishers for fiction and non-fiction works. Language instructors may have such a program in their background, as well. In addition, government service workers, especially when involved in international relations, usually benefit greatly from knowing multiple languages.

Pathway programs can be found at numerous universities worldwide; online options can exist for some host schools, though many are campus-based. To start, search for your program below and contact directly the admission office of the school of your choice by filling in the lead form.
