Notes:


 

*Credit students who are new to college (no successfully completed college coursework at other institutions) are required to take ACDV 101  in the first semester at CCBC. This is a 1-credit class, and it does not count towards the number of credits required for a degree or certificate. Students are required to provide an official transcript(s) to document successful completion of college coursework at another institution(s) for this requirement to be waived.

**These courses may also be used as General Education Electives. Depending upon the General Education Electives selected, a student may need to complete more elective credits to reach a minimum of 60 credits for the degree.

World language courses satisfy the General Education Diversity course requirement.

Most four-year universities require three to four semesters of a single world language.

Several world languages are offered in online (Distance Education) and blended formats. Students registering for a world language course in an online or blended format should understand how an online learning environment functions. Online and blended courses may be more challenging for students with no prior experience with the language. Though the 101 level is always taught for beginners, online and blended world language courses are better suited for students with some prior experience with the language.

 

Transfer Pattern Description


This degree pattern is designed to help students transfer to colleges and universities that offer a baccalaureate degree with a major in World Languages. Beyond the General Education requirements and options, this pattern should be considered in light of the requirements of the selected transfer institution. Students should consult with a transfer coordinator or an advisor for information about specific requirements.

Since four-year institutions vary widely in their requirements, students intending to major in World Languages should contact the program coordinator as soon as possible to plan the appropriate sequence of study.

Transfer Pattern Outcomes


Upon successful completion of this transfer pattern, students will be able to:

  1. use high-intermediate vocabulary and grammatical structures of the primary target language* and introductory vocabulary and grammatical structures in the secondary target language* successfully in written and spoken exercises;
  2. comprehend and analyze a variety of topics in the written and spoken language at the mid to high-intermediate level in the primary target language and at the mid to high-novice level in the secondary target language;
  3. engage in ongoing conversations to complete tasks and express interests and preferences at a mid to high-intermediate level of the primary target language and at a mid to high-novice level of the secondary target language;
  4. interpret other disciplines through the study of the target languages;
  5. understand language as a fundamental category of diversity and analyze the histories, traditions, practices and perspectives of diverse speakers of the target languages (both dominant and underrepresented groups)  in the US and throughout the world; and
  6. evaluate the experiences of diverse speakers of the target languages in both historical and contemporary contexts;

*Primary target language = language studied for four semesters, up to high-intermediate level (level 101, 102, 201 and 202).
*Secondary target language = language studied for two semesters, up to high-novice level (level 101 and 102).

Other


Placement into World Language Courses


100 and 102-level courses are not open to native speakers of that language.

Students with two or more years of world language study should not register for a 101-level course. The 101 level of any world language course is designated for beginning students with no prior experience with the language, or with fewer than two years of experience with the language.

Several world languages are offered in online (Distance Education) and blended formats. Students registering for a world language course in an online or blended format should understand how an online learning environment functions. Online and blended courses may be more challenging for students with no prior experience with the language. Though the 101 level is always taught for beginners, online and blended world language courses are better suited for students with some prior experience with the language.
