Program description

Liberal Arts: Emphasis in Foreign Language Associate in Arts Degree

This program is designed to acquaint students with foreign languages and with an understanding of the culture and history of the people who speak them. The study of foreign languages encourages students to examine assumptions they have uncritically accepted before their college experience. Students with substantial foreign language fluency who combine their language skills with a solid foundation in liberal education will find fulfilling occupations.

It will also encourage them to appreciate the complexities of the multicultural society in which they live. Students will acquire the necessary language skills to succeed in everyday life experiences, vocational programs, and university transfer courses.
