A wide range of employers appreciate the skills graduates of Oriental Studies gain from their studies. Each student has an aspect that interest him or her about Asia and therefore the job prospects for graduates of Oriental Studies are as varied as one can imagine. Graduates of Oriental Studies can either work in Armenia or work in an international environment that does not necessarily have anything to do with Oriental World.  Possible international or domestic career tracks include:  academia, arts and arts management, consultancy, diplomacy, financial institutions and banks, human resources, international organizations, journalism, media and marketing, politics, public service, tourism, trade, translation and interpretation, etc.
A Bachelor in Oriental Studies can give a broad overview of issues and a thorough education in an Asian language whereas a Master in Oriental Studies usually focuses more on a specific topic or country and does not include as many classes of language instruction as an undergraduate programme.
Becoming proficient in an Oriental language is a great opportunity for individual and academic growth. The feeling of achievement one gets from being fluent in a language that is not his or her own, the practicality of language skills for an international career, as well as a new perspective on the world, are just a few of the rewards when studying an Asian language.
Moreover, ability to understand people from other countries and being able to communicate interculturally are valued skills on the international job market. As corporations and agencies open branches in Asia and increase their cooperation with Asian businesses and organizations, knowledge of the native culture and language are increasingly in demand. Additionally, an academic career entails being able to analyze complex problems, research several different topics and present knowledge in a concise manner.
