Spanish is the only language available at LBCC for students wishing to pursue a foreign language degree. Transfer credit language classes earn four transfer credits each and emphasize speaking, reading and writing, and helping students to build proficiency.
LBCC offers two programs leading to degrees in Foreign Language:
The program leading to an Associate of Science in Foreign Language is designed for students planning to transfer to Oregon State University to complete a baccalaureate degree in a foreign language. Students interested in this degree, or who would like to pursue an Associate of Science degree in a language other than Spanish, are strongly encouraged to enroll in the Degree Partnership Program (DPP), which allows students to take classes at both institutions.
The program leading to an Associate of Arts Oregon Transfer (AAOT) degree with an emphasis in Foreign Language prepares students for transfer into any public four-year university in Oregon, where students may complete requirements for the baccalaureate degree with two additional years of work.
