A doctorate degree is the most esteemed title awarded by universities internationally. The Doctorate of Philosophy is the most common of these degrees, as it can be awarded to students in the most diverse range of subjects. A PhD is distinguishable from other degrees by being a mastery of wisdom achieved after countless hours of study and application to a specific piece of original research.

What is a PhD in Other Languages? PhD students of other languages usually focus study on one aspect of the language or cultures with numerous speakers of that language. Completion of these degrees often requires not only an approved subject of original research for the student but also a dissertation defending that research and tests proving a mastery of the language being studied. Some universities even require a certain level of proficiency in an additional language with similar origins.

PhD graduates of other languages benefit their lives and careers by developing excellent communication skills and a heightened sense of comprehension and understanding of different peoples and cultures. Additionally, the need to translate both internally and externally in another language gives the PhD-awarded individual a unique propensity for analyzing situations and people.

A PhD in Other Languages can take anywhere from three to seven years to complete, depending on the university, and the cost is just as varied for the same reason. Therefore, a little investigation into a student’s top choices of universities is incredibly advantageous.

There are many career paths available to PhD graduates of other languages. Jobs range from linguistic professors or foreign language teachers in schools and universities across the globe to translators or interpreters for international agencies or internationally serving companies. There are even career options in the technical world, such as a computational linguist or technical writer and translator.

PhD degrees are offered in other languages all over the world, depending on the language or country of choice. Search for your program below and contact directly the admission office of the school of your choice by filling in the lead form.
