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.

Cal Poly SLO, Aerospace Engineering
I excelled in math and science in school, so engineering was the right fit and I just had to figure out how to get it done. Throughout high school, I took courses at Allan Hancock College (AHC), and graduated as my high school valedictorian. I then attended AHC in search of a smooth transition to a university. I was able to take my lower division engineering courses and form a great relationship with my professors. While at AHC, I received multiple scholarships form the Allan Hancock Foundation, Santa Barbara Foundation, and MESA-NSF Scholarship. I then attended California Polytechnic University, San Luis Obispo, to pursue an aerospace engineering degree. After just one year at Cal Poly, I was accepted into one of the most prestigious internship programs that NASA offers, the Aeronautics Academy.
