The Foreign Languages Associate in Arts degree 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 a 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. This is normally a 4 semester sequence.

Proficiency at the intermediate level is required to enter a bachelors’ degree program with a major or minor in a Foreign Language. 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.

Students who plan to transfer to a limited access program are responsible for completing the specific requirements of the institution to which they will transfer since completion of this transfer track does not guarantee admission to an upper division limited access program. Students in this transfer track must complete all required college‐preparatory courses, prerequisites for the listed course requirements. Courses meeting the preceding requirements may be in addition to the 60 credit hours listed.
