Liberal Arts Impact: Linguistics

Are you interested in picking up a Linguistics major or minor? Do you want to learn more about the knowledge you’ll gain from coursework in the IU Department of Linguistics and how this knowledge gives you an edge in the job market?

Liberal Arts Impact is a series of events that have connected thousands of Indiana University students directly with hundreds of College of Arts + Sciences alumni. This informal event allows you to hear from recent alumni of the IU Department of Linguistics on how they’ve used their liberal arts education in starting and advancing their careers. These alumni work in a variety of industries and will share ways to strategically leverage the advantage a liberal arts degree has across career fields.
Alumni guests include:
– Isak Nti Asare, Associate Director, Language Workshop; Associate Director, Cybersecurity & Global Policy Program, IU Bloomington
– Colleen Newbill, Attorney, Mallor Grodner LLP
– Michael Young, Advisory Consultant, Deloitte
– Laura Zweig, Manager, Digital Hives at Engines

Current faculty from the IU Department of Linguistics will share how the skills and knowledge they’re teaching in the classroom relates directly to the ever-evolving world of work. They too will illuminate how obtaining liberal arts skills provides a leg up in an unpredictable future job market.

This is also a great, low-key event for networking with younger alumni that were in your shoes only a few years ago.
