The Value of Language

Your decision to pursue the study of a foreign language may prove one of the most rewarding choices of your academic career. The potential personal, professional, economic, and social benefits of learning a foreign language are considerable.

Our Mission

Our mission is to provide foreign language courses that assist in developing communicative skills and awareness of other cultures and that provide students with a basis in a foreign language that will prepare them for a successful transfer into a baccalaureate degree granting institution. We believe that all students should have a continuing opportunity to enhance their understanding of foreign languages and foreign cultures. This belief requires student-centered instructional strategies and high academic standards.
