Second language skills are a key competency for employment in an increasingly globalised society. Students undertake study of a language other than English (Arabic, Chinese, Italian, Japanese, Spanish) suited to their level of language proficiency and career aspirations. The major area includes units about specialized topics, including literature, cinema and culture. Competence in a modern language other than English opens doors to many careers in education, government and community-based industries and businesses.
