Spanish – Associate in Arts Degree

Top Code: 1105.00

The Spanish program offers a broad spectrum of courses, ranging from language instruction to studies of civilization, culture, literature, and the arts. Language courses focus on all four skills—reading and listening comprehension, writing, and speaking. Non-language courses provide training in critical thinking while exploring cultural and literary themes in a historical context. The purpose of this major is twofold: to develop proficiency in written and spoken communication as well as to foster an understanding and appreciation of cultural diversity and knowledge of the rich cultural and literary tradition of Spain and Latin America. The skills acquired will prepare students to pursue careers in education, journalism, business, linguistics, art, music, and international relations.

Please Note: The courses that universities and colleges require for transfer vary. When selecting courses for transfer purposes, students should consult with Counseling Services to determine the particular transfer requirements of specific transfer institutions.
