Program Overview

The Academic Certificate (AC) in Language Studies is designed to provide students with a foundation in the study of culture, language, and linguistic structures. Students will have the opportunity to develop oral and written communication skills in a language other than English. Whether a student is a complete beginner, wants to brush up existing skills, or is looking for a degree in languages, Rio Salado College can provide a flexible, step-by-step way of achieving students' learning goals.

Students will develop proficiency in all four skills – reading, writing, speaking and listening. This program will examine the nature, diversity and variation of language, describe linguistic concepts and the process of language acquisition, and demonstrate communication skills in selected foreign language courses. This program requires one to 15 credits, and students must earn a grade of "C" or better for all courses within the program.
