The Associate of Arts degree in Spanish will prepare students for transfer to four-year institutions across the nation and around the world in pursuit of a Bachelor of Arts degree in Spanish, Linguistics or other baccalaureate programs. Students will complete the program having achieved intermediate-level Spanish proficiencies as well as an understanding of cultural and historical contexts both within the U.S. and throughout the Spanish-speaking world.
This degree may also complement other fields of study—as a double major—and prepare graduates to be more marketable in a global jobs arena. And in an increasingly diverse U.S. population, the need for Spanish grows in countless fields of employment, including but not limited to, Engineering, Government, Business, Construction Management, Interpreting/Translation, Law, Health Care, Human Services, Law Enforcement, Education, Agriculture, and International Relations. Regardless of career path, this degree will help graduates be more successful in a multilingual world.
