Alrighty, so I've been driving myself mental for over a year now imagining which subject I would be happiest studying long term. I applied to schools for each of the three subjects I studied at the university. Right now I've begun narrowing it down, and am thinking I will probably stay at the same university for a couple of years to do a master's with the intention of continuing on to a PhD somewhere else afterward. I am stuck between Spanish and German. I have been accepted to the Spanish program, and will be accepted to German probably this week.
Can anyone tell me what they think or what they know? Also, as for funding, what would you say is an excellent offer? Right now I have offers for teaching assistantships and additional funding, but I was wondering what sort of stipend is considered good.
Also, I know careers related to Spanish will be easier to find, but can anyone give me some thoughts about PhD study or later careers with a background in either language?
I only have a little time to decide, so I am open to hearing everything right now.
