This transfer track is designed to assist students who plan to transfer to a Florida public university as a junior to complete a four year bachelors’ degree with a major or minor in Foreign Language. The Foreign Language transfer track builds competencies in listening, speaking, reading, writing and culture. Students begin at the elementary language level and continue to the intermediate level.

In addition to the required language core courses, students will have the opportunity to choose elective interdisciplinary courses that further develop their cultural, social and historical knowledge. This broad interdisciplinary approach can lead to a variety of career paths, such as government and international affairs, business, journalism, service professions, education, criminal justice, social sciences and public health.
