The Associate in Arts in Spanish for Transfer degree provides a sequential course of studies that will give students a greater understanding of the Spanish language and Spanish cultures/area studies. The program will promote language acquisition in a cultural context. Emphasis will be placed in the acquisition and development of communication skills (listening, speaking, reading and writing) and the promotion of cultural understanding (behaviors, institutions, perspectives and artistic manifestations.) This program is designed as a seamless pathway for students planning to transfer to a California State University (CSU) with a major in Spanish, and for students who are interested in acquiring linguistic and cultural competency in Spanish.

Program Learning Outcomes

  1. Students will demonstrate proficient oral expression in the Spanish language with appropriate grammatical accuracy, cultural awareness and a clear understanding of linguistic structures.
  2. Students will demonstrate an understanding of the cultural diversity of Spanish speakers (including behaviors, institutions, historical perspectives and artistic manifestations).
  3. Students will demonstrate proficient written expression in Spanish language with appropriate grammatical accuracy, cultural awareness and a clear understanding of linguistic structures.

Students are advised to double-count courses in the major or area of emphasis to also satisfy general education when possible. Course subject credit will be awarded in satisfaction of both major/area of emphasis and lower division general education requirements, but the units will only be counted once in computing the total number of units for the degree.

Minimum Degree Units Required: 60
