ASSOCIATE OF ACHIEVEMENT
The Certificate in Foreign Language is primarily to provide instruction and certification for individuals in the workforce to improve their employment opportunities. Secondarily, it will provide recognition for HLSCC students who have a strong interest in studying and speaking French or Spanish. All students will receive scholarly and practical instruction in a foreign language that will provide opportunities to speak, listen to, read, and write in the language, and provide exposure to cultural practices of the countries where the language is spoken. Note: In order to qualify for graduation, a student must have achieved a Grade of C in each course within the Certificate. While the Certificate is not designed for transfer purposes, courses may transfer as one or more components of a foreign language requirement at a university and may even enable full exemption from further language courses at a university.
