The Foreign Language Edge
The Foreign Language Edge is an annual information fair and expert panel discussion hosted by the Center for Second Language Studies at Vanderbilt University. The event connects the language programs at Vanderbilt with colleagues from all departments, programs, and centers across campus, as well as with off-campus organizations and community employers. During the fair, students are able to explore career paths and learn how to maximize their language skills. At our evening panel, practitioners in fields such as medicine, government, business, and finance discuss how they are using their language training in professional contexts. The goal of this event is to promote the study of foreign languages, to introduce students as early as possible to programs and/or careers that require proficiency in more than one language, and to present students with a variety of language resources available at Vanderbilt University.
