As the world becomes increasingly smaller, knowledge of foreign languages expands
in importance. Spanish is a very useful language in education, health, social services,
business, and other fields where contact with the public takes place. The focus of
the program is on language; however, students also gain historical, economic, and
cultural insights into the Hispanic world.
The graduate of the AA program in Spanish will:
- Be independent language learners and have core competencies in grammar and vocabulary,
reading, writing, oral and listening skills, and develop a cultural awareness, to
achieve their personal, vocational, and academic goals.

The first engineering class I took at Allan Hancock College was really challenging for me, but I thanked the counselor who showed me the way to the MESA program. There I was overwhelmed by all the resources offered and especially by all the students taking the same classes. Study groups with MESA students really made it easier for me to achieve. I am happy to say that I made it this far not only because of my determination to achieve a higher education, but also because of the wonderful people that I met at Hancock who encourage students to go the extra mile and accomplish their dreams.
