Allan Hancock College’s foreign language program provides instruction in Spanish,
French, Italian and American Sign Language. While most classes are offered as traditional
onsite classes, Spanish and Italian are also being offered online. Online classes
are offered via the Internet and require little, if any, on campus attendance, providing
a convenient way to attend college for students with jobs or other obligation.
Although the program emphasizes the four aspects of language learning—speaking, understanding,
reading and writing—culture is also an integral component of the classes. For French,
Italian, Latin and American Sign Language, the college offers instruction at the first-year
level. The Spanish program includes both first- and second-year courses as well as
an associate in arts degree in Spanish.
The Spanish degree program focuses on the language, but also includes historical, economical and cultural insights
into the Hispanic world.
