University with great FOREIGN LANGUAGE PROGRAM and high study abroad percentage?
I live in Southern California and I am confused about everything related to college. I am looking at: Please comment on my top choices and give your reccomendations and insights.
San Francisco State
UC Santa Barbara
I am looking for:
good study abroad program(many students study abroad)
broad foreign languages department
After I graduate HS i will have taken Spanish, French, and Chinese, but I am not sure what I want to major in yet. I have been looking up careers related to translation/interpretation and I found out they make nothing. I do not want to be poor my entire life. but I want to be happy too. I find German to be interesting, but I feel the same with portuguese...but I would love to major in Japanese/Chinese too... although I have never even studied these languages. Due to my family not stably supporting me due to religious conflicts, I am beginning to realize that I may just have to go into debt and attend a cheap college like SFSU. This is why I am considering the Peace Corps, it helps build my resume and pays off my debt.(Comment please!).
I saw jobs such as :
Foreign trade analyst
English Teacher Abroad (This would not be permanent)
*My teacher did this, but not through a program, and he became fluent in the language even though he had never studied it.
