DEPARTMENT OF MODERN LANGUAGES- MISSION
The Modern Languages Department serves and educates the diverse communities at Santa Ana College through its course offerings in Spanish, Chinese, Italian, Japanese, Vietnamese, and French. The Department's foreign languages programs embrace all delivery methods, including traditional in-class instruction, accelerated courses, as well as online and hybrid platforms. Its offerings prompt broad learning in its students by fostering critical thinking through literary analysis, cross-cultural competency, development of multiple rhetorical styles, exposure to a variety of artistic movements, improved writing of expression through the mastery of grammar and form, and overall academic achievement. In sum, the department's curricula seek to instill critical literacy and conversational skills across languages while also providing the transfer pathway towards a bachelor's degree at four-year institutions and preparing students for the global, multilingual, and multicultural world they will encounter afterwards.
