Associate of Arts Oregon Transfer Degree
Students who study world languages begin a path of lifelong learning of languages and culture. World languages introduce students to the larger global community and offer them the skills to communicate effectively in that larger arena by mastering the four major language skills: listening, speaking, reading and writing.
Studying a foreign language broadens your perspective of the world, while teaching you the value of other peoples and cultures. The study of a foreign language strengthens and reinforces critical thinking and fosters patience and perseverance, valuable skills in today's workplace.
Students studying world languages enhance their career possibilities, often combining World Languages with other career fields such as Business, International Relations, Journalism, Law, Medicine and Tourism. In today's global market, "bilingual" on your resume gives you a head start to a brilliant future!
If you have previous experience with a second language, please contact Nicholas Tratz for course placement and/or advising.
