At Missouri Southern, learning a foreign language is not simply a past time or hobby; it is a serious necessity in all sectors of the U.S. economy. Are you prepared for a future in which multi-lingual abilities are a must for international trading, government, technology, education, health and so on? Our department continually improves upon a world-class education by providing the technology, the literature, the outreach, the quality teaching and the enthusiasm to students of all types of cultural, educational and vocational backgrounds. With these readily available tools and some encouragement, students increase their job opportunities and improve their communications skills which are required no matter what career path they follow.
