The Student - Career Interests

This course is typically suited for people with the following Career Interests. If these interests do not describe you, this course may prepare you for work you may not find satisfying.

Linguistic

The Linguistic's interests are usually focused on ideas and information exchange. They tend to like reading a lot, and enjoy discussion about what has been said. Some will want to write about their own ideas and may follow a path towards journalism, story writing or editing. Others will develop skills in other languages, perhaps finding work as a translator or interpreter. Most Linguistic types will enjoy the opportunity to teach or instruct people in a topic they are interested in.

Enterprising

Enterprising people like situations that involve using resources for personal or corporate economic gain. Such people may have an opportunistic frame of mind, and are drawn to commerce, trade and making deals. Some pursue sales and marketing occupations. Many will eventually end up owning their own business, or in management roles in larger organisations. They tend to be very goal-oriented and work best when focused on a target. Some have an entrepreneurial inclination.

Career Progression

Between second and final year you will have the opportunity to study at our partner universities in China. This will improve your language ability, foster intercultural competence, and help you to acquire the confidence and skills that you need in the job market.

As a graduate of Chinese Studies at Maynooth you are in a prime position to take advantage of the existing links between the two countries. Your language skills and knowledge of Chinese culture will open doors for you in international trade and commerce, international relations and diplomacy, business, politics, or the media. Many language graduates also enjoy rewarding careers in EU institutions such as the European Commission.
