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.
