Spanish in the CFCC Curriculum
Most students who take a foreign language at CFCC do so because the senior colleges they wish to transfer to, including UNCW, ECU, UNCG, UNCA, ASU, and UNC-CH, require the completion of some foreign language for graduation. The two most popular destinations for CFCC transfer students, UNCW and ECU, require 2-3 semesters and 2 full years respectively. Hence, students wishing to transfer to these schools are strongly encouraged to start with a foreign language during their first year at CFCC.
Other students take a foreign language at CFCC to count toward the Foreign Languages and Global Awareness component of the Associate in Arts degree. Still others take a foreign language because they would simply like to learn a foreign language and culture. Most foreign language courses can also be counted as electives in the AA, AS, and AFA degrees.
