Foreign Language

Foreign language puts the world at your fingertips

The study of language allows you to understand the world better, identify commonalities, and respect cultural differences. At Austin Community College, students can study eight languages: Arabic, Chinese, French, German, Japanese, Latin, Russian, and Spanish. Foreign language majors typically follow the pathway through ACC, then transfer to a bachelor’s degree program at a four-year institution. In addition, students can apply their bilingual language skills in other occupations.

Career Information
