Senior Profile: Megan Rouch (Japanese & German Studies ’19)

As both a Japanese minor and German student and teacher’s assistant, I have witnessed firsthand the usefulness and value of a learning new languages. My knowledge as a linguistics major about both languages and their cultures, as well as language learning, use, and structure in general, has been highly informed by my experiences in these courses. Additionally, these departments have provided me with some of the best friends and experiences I have had in college, such as living in the Japanese House for nearly two years and studying abroad in Potsdam, Germany, in addition to applying later to the Fulbright programs in Austria and Germany. The modern languages department at William and Mary has influenced not only my path at the College but also afterward, and I will carry what I have learned here with me always.
