Spanish Emphasis - Associate of Arts Degree

CMC offers Spanish Language I-IV, a series of transfer-level courses.

We do this within a context of learning about cultures of the Spanish-speaking world.

Conversational Spanish and Certificate Program

CMC offers Conversational Spanish through a series of five courses that focus on community members who wish to develop conversational Spanish skills. Students will gain the necessary skills to understand and speak Spanish.

This is a series of courses at a variety of levels, so community members that already have some level of proficiency can continue to develop their skills.  These skills are developed within a cultural context as we explore the cultures of the Spanish speaking world, including our own communities.  For more information, contact Professor Carol Koch, 970-569-2914,
