Students converse in a Spanish class

Program Overview

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.

Cosmetology Instructor

"Being able to teach Cosmetology has been one of the most rewarding experiences of my hairdressing career. To be able to take a new batch of students who are open to new ideas and be able to help mold them into future stylists is very rewarding. I learn as much from the students as they learn from my teaching. Being associated with Allan Hancock College has allowed me to do what I love most: teach."
