What is the program about?

The Associate of Arts in Modern Languages is designed for students who are planning to transfer to a four-year university as a Chinese, French, German, Japanese, Spanish major, or into a major for which modern language is a strong base. The curriculum fulfills the freshman and sophomore general education requirements of most four-year colleges and universities. As part of this degree program, students must complete the requirements of the Ohio Transfer 36 in order to graduate.

Program Outcomes

  • Read, write and speak one language at the intermediate (2nd-year) level or two languages at the beginning level (1st-year level).
  • Recognize and articulate an understanding of the increasing interdependence of world cultures and their consequences.
  • Demonstrate ability to think logically and solve problems using analysis, synthesis and evaluation.
  • Communicate effectively in a variety of ways with varied audiences through writing skills, oral communication skills, listening skills, reading skills, computer literacy and information literacy.
  • Achieve group goals in a variety of social contexts.
  • Demonstrate responsibility and accountability in accomplishing goals.

Career Opportunities

The Associate's in Arts in Modern Languages will provide students a solid foundation for transfer to programs in language, international studies, pre-law, business, and other fields. The southwest Ohio region has numerous international business connections, as well as having a growing number of non-native speakers of English. A graduate of this program will have demonstrated either basic language proficiency in two languages, or intermediate proficiency in one.

Transferability

Completion of this program guarantees completion of the Ohio Transfer Module (OTM). OTM courses are guaranteed to transfer to any public institution in Ohio on a course-by-course basis or in total. Formal articulation agreements with other colleges and universities indicate how Sinclair programs and courses will transfer to other institutions.
