What should I minor in: French or Japanese?
I began learning Japanese in high school (and continued a year afterwards in college), went to Japan after graduating on a scholarship through Rotary International - where I had an incredible experience living with 4 different homestay families and practicing the language. I decided to major in Global Studies, and one of the requirements was to study abroad. They didn’t have an option for studying in Japan, so I decided to go to France instead. After that I became very interested in learning French so I’ve recently been taking beginning French classes and began interning at the French Chamber of Commerce, where I can practice the language. I am also planning on writing my thesis on a topic related to France since I studied there for two months. On a personal note, I had some ups and downs in college, which caused me to slow down academically, and I am now a part time student. I have a passion for learning BOTH languages and was thinking of taking up a minor. But I don’t know what language to pursue: French or Japanese!? What will be more beneficial for my future? I have so many ideas on what to do after graduating…I want to get an M.A. in SOMETHING - I don’t know what yet (although I have thought of teaching, law school, or further studies in globalization/international relations). I also thought of the option to study in a foreign country - i.e. France or Japan. For work experience, I’ve thought of teaching English in France or Japan. These are all really big decisions, and I am so confused about 1. a minor 2. what to study/do after getting my B.A. I’m also already 25 and I don’t want to waste any more time being indecisive. Any suggestions?
