Romanian  (Minor)

ASU has built the largest Romanian program in the U.S., and you can be part of it. Study language, politics, culture and religion --- everything that makes Romania a vibrant member of the European Union.

Program Description

The Romanian minor program provides students with the means to develop their interests in social, cultural and political matters while advancing their Romanian language skills.

Career Opportunities

A minor enables students to enhance the marketable skills and knowledge they acquire in their major program and to also develop additional competencies. A minor in Romanian studies equips students with communication and cultural competency skills, a valuable benefit when they will pursue careers in political analysis, education, tourism and hospitality, the military and sociology or marketing.
