Many students find linguistics useful because it broadens and deepens their understanding of related fields: languages and literature (English and foreign), social sciences (especially anthropology, sociology, and psychology), education, philosophy, communication… Those who obtain degrees in linguistics often proceed to careers in:

foreign language teaching
instructional technology
ESL (teaching English as a second language)
teaching and research in general linguistics (phonology, syntax…)
translation (human and machine-assisted)
speech pathology and audiology.
