Why Study a Foreign Language at Chestnut Hill College? Students choosing to major or minor in foreign languages will have the opportunity to study with nationally and internationally recognized professors. They will benefit from small classes, individual attention and dedicated teachers. The department maintains a rigorous curriculum but helps each student along the way. We live in a global society and must learn the culture and language of other nations in order to promote mutual understanding and peace. Chestnut Hill College also offers foreign language classes in Chinese, German, Italian and Russian.

The Benefits of a Degree in a Foreign Language Many careers are open to graduates competent in another language. Teaching is an obvious choice. However, government work, business and non-profit organizations are open to all graduates, especially those with a foreign language background.
