Spanish Language and Cultures Support
SPANISH LANGUAGE AND CULTURES SUPPORT (SLC)
Spanish is spoken in 27 countries and is the fourth most commonly spoken language in the world. The Spanish Language and Cultures support is designed specifically to develop your spoken and written communication skills and to help you become a viable member of the growing Spanish-speaking community in the United States and abroad.
STUDENTS OF SPANISH AS A SECOND LANGUAGE:
If you are a student of Spanish as a second language, you can receive up to 12-credits of prior learning credit toward SLC courses by taking the SLC 100 Spanish Language Placement Assessment, available in the Assessment Center for a $10 fee. In that case, you would be required to take any course at SLC 300 level and one capstone course (SLC 400 level). The capstone courses provide further practice in writing and a deepened appreciation for Hispanic literatures, cultures, history, film, art and music.
BILINGUAL HERITAGE OR NATIVE SPEAKERS:
If you are a bilingual heritage or native Spanish speaker, you can receive a maximum of 12-credits of prior learning credit toward SLC courses by taking the SLC 100 Spanish Language Placement Assessment. Your oral and written proficiency will be evaluated by the SLC faculty. If approved, you can bypass SLC 303. You would then be required to take SLC 403 and one other capstone choice.
