About the Program

A major reason for studying the Spanish language is the enrichment of one’s intellectual growth in the context of the rest of the world. In learning Spanish, one also learns about the culture, philosophy, and civilization of another people, thereby broadening understanding of the world. On the practical side, any field of specialization (journalism, medicine, law, business, teaching) is enhanced if one can speak another language. In California, knowledge of a modern language is now required in many jobs that deal with the public such as Civil Service, social work, nursing, and other service-oriented fields.

Transfer
Students planning to transfer to a four-year institution should complete the lower division major requirements and general education pattern for the appropriate transfer institution and major. Exact major requirements for UC and CSU institutions can be found on www.assist.org. Please see a counselor for more information as curriculum requirements may vary among transfer universities.

A.A. in Spanish
Spanish language courses serve a dual purpose, which is to acquire structural and verbal skills, which satisfy both academic and cultural needs. The program serves both transfer students and those seeking self-enrichment. Students may take classes at either campus to fulfill requirements for the major. Please note: Students may choose English 120, 120SL, or 150 to complete the Associate degree. Transfer students, however, are advised to complete English 150. All students should consult a counselor.
