The Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board (THECB) marketable skills initiative is part of the state’s 60x30TX plan and was designed to help students articulate their skills to employers.  Marketable skills are those skills valued by employers and/or graduate programs that can be applied in a variety of work or education settings and may include interpersonal, cognitive, and applied skill areas.

The BA in French is designed to provide graduates with the following marketable skills:

  • Assesses best cultural and language practices, and competences to engage with others in professional, academic, and social contexts.
  • Engage in pluricultural identities, mediate among cultures, and navigate cultural differences.
  • Evaluate assumptions, concepts, language and culture to develop feasible solutions based on analysis and interpretation of results. 
  • Apply knowledge and skills to implement sophisticated, appropriate, and workable solutions to address complex problems using multilingual and multicultural perspectives.
  • Adapt and apply a deep understanding of multiple world views, experiences, and power structures while initiating meaningful cross-cultural interaction to address significant global questions.
