Foreign Languages

Oregon is an increasingly global state, and our economy has strong demand for speakers of a foreign language. Students interested in focusing their education on mastering a foreign language can begin at Clatsop. Our students benefit from small classes where conversation and vocabulary are the focus. Clatsop Community College offers classes in Spanish, French, and American Sign Language. Further, students are encouraged to focus on English, writing and speech classes to refine their overall communication skills.

Your advisor can help you research careers and educational opportunities in foreign languages and can develop an Associate of Arts, Oregon Transfer (AAOT) degree.
