The Center for Languages, Literatures and Cultures (CLLC) offers students the intellectual, linguistic and cultural tools needed to succeed personally and professionally in our complex global economy. One of the most valuable traits you can possess is the ability to speak a second or multiple languages.  You will not only be more marketable professionally, but will increase your worth and effectiveness to future employers.  Knowing an additional language makes you a better global citizen, enriches your personal life and gives you a strong voice in the world.  Whatever your professional aspirations, consider the benefits of double majoring with a language or choosing a language minor.  Ohio State offers you the ability to study, major or minor in over 30 languages.  You can enhance your skills by interacting with peers in the one-of-a-kind Crane Caf, enrolling in Service Learning courses that will connect you with multiple language communities in Central Ohio, and participating in a diverse array of short- and long-term education abroad opportunities.
Career Corner
The Ohio State University Career and Internship Fair will be held on September 13 and 14, from 11 a.m. - 3 p.m. in the Ohio Union!  Plan to attend and connect with employers who'll be recruiting for career employment and internships.  Students of all ranks are encouraged to attend this event!  Even if you are not actively looking for an opportunity attendance is beneficial as you will be able to network with employers and gain valuable experience navigating the career fair setting.  If you're approaching graduation, the fair will help you connect with employers offering entry-level opportunities.  Career and internship fairs are held throughout the year, and most are open to all students.  We encourage you to research each fair to learn which employers are attending.  Some employers are only on-campus for one fair each year.

Education Abroad Program Highlight - 
Understanding the Impact of HIV On Health and Society - East Africa
Tanzania and its neighboring countries in east Africa share a border with the waters of Lake Malawi, several ethnic groups, and overlapping histories. They are among the poorest countries in sub- Saharan Africa, but they are also vibrant, safe places where visitors are welcome. Tanzania has suffered disproportionately from HIV, but has also taken important steps to address the epidemic.  Combining the characteristics of Tanzania with faculty leader expertise, participants will have an excellent opportunity to learn in this location in ways that would be unavailable to tourists. In addition to classroom instruction, students will take part in immersive learning and research activities to generate or use primary sources (e.g. interviews, archived documents, and village-level data) to understand the impact of HIV.
