Associate of Arts

Students interested in studying Spanish with the intent of earning an Associate of Arts degree or transferring to a four-year university for a Bachelor of Arts degree should major in Spanish. A Spanish degree empowers students to understand, speak, read, and write Spanish and gain a broad understanding of the Hispanic civilization and culture in the work place and within the United States.

Education Concentration or Liberal Arts Concentration

Laramie County Community College's Spanish Program offers two paths for obtaining an Associate of Arts degree: Spanish – Liberal Arts and Spanish Teaching. Both of these emphases are intended for those majoring in Spanish at a four-year institution. Double majoring with Spanish is recommended for many careers. Consult your academic advisor for further information.

Students pursuing a career in education either as Spanish teachers or bilingual school administrators should complete an Associate of Arts degree with an emphasis in Spanish Teaching. This pathway allows students to complete the coursework in Spanish and also complete their required course load in education-related courses. Students completing this path are encouraged to double major with Spanish and Education, doing so will more effectively prepare them for transfer to a four-year institution.
