Why study Languages at Deakin?

Get ready for your new career

This award offers considerable flexibility by making it possible for you to study language as an adjunct to any other discipline(s), particularly when your degree structure would not otherwise permit completion of the full language major.
The Diploma of Language will be of interest to students across the University for whom a systematic study of language is a desirable addition to their primary course of study.

Career and Industry

Language skills in Arabic, Chinese, Indonesian and Spanish are increasingly important in diplomacy, defence, security, commerce and trade-related fields; as well as for developing intercultural understanding and a global outlook.
These four languages are all strategic in terms of Australia's interests, and new opportunities are expected to emerge in the future in response to our ever-changing world.
