The department of Spanish offers a variety of courses where students can begin their Spanish language study.
Spanish is the second most used language in the United States and is spoken all over the world.
Knowing Spanish can open doors in whichever field you choose to enter, especially in California, where speaking more than one language is always a desirable skill set to future employers. While the career benefits are clear, there are other personal advantages in learning a foreign language.
The Spanish language not only presents one with a brand-new language to learn, but it also introduces one to whole new culture as well, where one can broaden their scope of the world and dive into other rich and vibrant cultures.
The Spanish language courses, as an integral part of the humanities program, prepare students for transfer to a university with strong second language skills and knowledge about cultural attitudes of Spanish speakers.
MJC provides an array of foreign/world language courses, which offers students the chance to learn a new language, while also engaging with other cultures and traditions.
