Students converse in a Spanish class

Program Overview

As the world becomes increasingly smaller, knowledge of foreign languages expands in importance. Spanish is a very useful language in education, health, social services, business, and other fields where contact with the public takes place. The focus of the program is on language; however, students also gain historical, economic, and cultural insights into the Hispanic world. 

The graduate of the AA program in Spanish will:

  • Be independent language learners and have core competencies in grammar and vocabulary, reading, writing, oral and listening skills, and develop a cultural awareness, to achieve their personal, vocational, and academic goals.

The instructors are really open and willing to share their knowledge with you. They have so much experience to share with us, things that would take years to see in the field."
