Modern Languages and Literatures

Sean Flanigan ’17

How did you choose your area of study?

I discovered a profound interest in learning languages early on and began my studies in French in 6th grade and continued on throughout high school. Majoring in French was an easy choice for me, but it took more academic exploration until I decided to pursue a second major in Business, as I was undecided until the middle of my sophomore year at Lake Forest. Business seemed a natural complement for my French major as international business and foreign affairs is a niche career path that a multitude of companies, groups, and organizations desire in a young, professionally driven recent grad.
