World Languages

This program allows students to focus on the Spanish language and the cultures that speak Spanish for their Associate of Arts degree. Students must successfully complete the core courses with a “C” or higher to meet program requirements. After completing the Spanish Core Requirements, students will have the foundation necessary to continue Spanish study at an intermediate level. With the choices offered in the Core Electives, students will also be exposed to courses which offer a focus on the relationship of language, culture, history, and peoples as these contribute to a deeper understanding of our global society. Students should consult with their advisor and the appropriate transfer college catalog to plan their program of study.

Modern Language Education

Students who plan to teach at the secondary level should complete coursework both in the Secondary Education program and in their primary language (Spanish). Students need to work closely with their Northwest advisors to monitor the requirements of transfer institutions. Language majors have found it helpful to initiate study of a second foreign language during their first two years of college work. Northwest’s course offerings and scheduling support such an option.
