Associate of Arts

This program is intended for 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. 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 world and within the United States.

Education Concentration or Liberal Arts Concentration

Laramie County Community College Spanish Program offers two paths for obtaining an Associate of Arts degree: Spanish - Liberal Arts and Spanish - Education. Both of these concentrations 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.

This pathway allows students to complete an Associate of Arts degree in Spanish with an emphasis in liberal arts, allowing students to further pursue a bachelor's degree in a liberal arts field or increase their employability by becoming bilingual. Students who complete Spanish broaden their career opportunities in many different fields such as travel, broadcasting, translating, law enforcement, nursing, international business, public relations, diplomacy, FBI, CIA, advertising, management, government, public relations, social service, and many others.

Transfer Agreement with Four-Year Institution: Program Articulation

LCCC has partnered with a four-year institution to articulate a way for students to transfer earned credits. This articulation is a formal agreement between LCCC and the institution. This agreement matches up coursework to make the transfer process smooth and to eliminate any duplication of courses. Any deviations from the prescribed course list will not articulate.

Cost of Attendance
