Spanish, a transfer program, is an academic discipline necessary to keep pace with our globally interconnected world. In this age, where borders have been erased by digital media and fast-pace electronic interaction is the norm, Spanish provides skills sought after in many fields: Business, Medicine, Law, Science, Economics, Politics, Public Service, and more. More than ever, the Spanish language is a major piece of the foundation for academic and career success. The Spanish program empowers the individual through a structured and progressive study; from basic to advance skills in writing, reading, grammar, oral communication, Spanish culture, and history. The study of Spanish expands linguistic skills while enhancing intellectual growth, cultural literacy, and critical thinking.
MSJC offers a range of course work to prepare students for the workforce or to transfer to four-year colleges and universities. All four-year institutions prescribe their own standards for course evaluation and admissions. Courses that fulfill major requirements for an associate degree in this program might not be the same as those required for transfer into a similar major at a four-year university.
Transfer students are advised to do research on prospective majors and careers through the Career/Transfer Center and the MSJC catalog. Students interested in transferring to CSU’s or UC’s can access major preparation by visiting http://www.assist.org. All students are advised to meet with a counselor at least once a semester to create or update their comprehensive education plan.
