Career Prospects

Graduates of the Plan C track are expected to develop a high proficiency in Japanese or Korean upon their completion of the program. This, coupled with their training in linguistic analysis, makes them well-equipped to engage in translation and interpretation work, as well as in language teaching.

In general, our BA program aims for its students to develop a wide array of skills that are applicable to many jobs. Aside from developing students’ skills for linguistic analysis, students also have the opportunity to practice and develop their problem-solving skills, critical thinking skills, interpersonal communication skills, creativity, as well as their sociocultural awareness. Many of the graduates of our undergraduate program are therefore engaged in a wide variety of fields such as language education, teaching in higher education, research and data analysis, publishing, media and advertising, marketing, foreign service, and human resource management.
