Future Proofing Language Graduate Skills at DCU

In recent years we’ve seen a lot of discussion about the rise of Artificial Intelligence (AI) and what it will mean for jobs in the future. A primary focus is on what jobs will be automated and what jobs will not and this of course permeates to what choices students should make regarding college courses and which skills are “future-proof”. These discussions are important to us in the School of Applied Language and Intercultural Studies (SALIS for short) at DCU. We want to make sure that our graduates are equipped with a broad range of skills and competences so that they can be successful in the future, no matter what career path they chose.
