Allan Hancock College’s language program provides instruction in Spanish, French,
Italian, and American Sign Language. While most classes are offered as traditional
onsite classes, Spanish, French, and Italian are also offered online. For more information
of these offerings, please check the schedule of classes.
Although the program emphasizes the four aspects of language learning—speaking, understanding,
reading, and writing—culture is also an integral component of the classes.
The Spanish program provides beginner, intermediate, and advanced Spanish language
courses. Students can also earn an A.A. in Spanish degree, and A.A. in Spanish for
Transfer. Further, the program also provides three vocational-centered certificates
of accomplishment: Spanish Language Skills - Elementary Level, Spanish Language Skills
- Intermediate Level, and Spanish Language Skills - Advanced Level. The Spanish programs focus on the language, but also includes historical, economical and cultural insights
into the Hispanic world.
For French, Italian, and American Sign Language, the college also offers instruction
in beginner French, beginner and intermediate Italian, and beginner and intermediate

"I am a frequent visitor to the Allan Hancock College Library on the Santa Maria campus for many reasons. It's a place for me to enjoy some peace and quiet between classes, as well as study and complete my homework. The librarians are always nice with a warm welcome and very helpful. Students also receive free Wi-Fi and computer access."
