Certificate Program Description:
This program provides an in-depth study of the spoken and written language and prepares students to use the chosen 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
