Studying a language can prepare you for a range of pathways and careers. Many of our alumni have continued their studies at some of the highest ranked universities in the U.S.—including Ohio State and Yale—and others now have successful careers in professional fields including health, government, business, and education. We are proud to see our alumni teaching in K-12 and college classrooms, serving as foreign ministers, and even pursuing careers as doctors and dentists.

Take a moment to hear from Kierstin Cates Kennedy, M.D., alumna and UAB Medicine Chief Medical Officer, as she reflects on her experience in the department with Lourdes Sánchez-López, Ph.D., professor of Spanish.
