Workforce Development Certificate

Program Description:

This program provides an in-depth study of the spoken and written language and prepares students to use the Spanish language as a career skill.
 The courses are designed to emphasize acquisition of competency sufficient to communicate orally and in writing with a native speaker of the target 
language on a professional or work-related basis. TCC instructional methods infuse technology into the learning process, which increases access to 
resources for the language. Graduates find a variety of positions with government or social organizations and firms involved with speakers of the 
target language (translating, interpreting, investments, accounting, banking, education, publishing, manufacturing, sales, service, and travel). Courses 
may also be transferred to an Associate of Arts Degree.
