Essential Outcomes:

As graduates of Casper College, students will be able to …

  • Demonstrate effective oral and written communication
  • Solve problems using critical thinking and creativity
  • Demonstrate knowledge of diverse cultures and historical perspectives
  • Use appropriate technology and information to conduct research

An Associate of Arts Degree in a World Language will prepare students to negotiate the diversity of our complex global society. Through a series of 3-4 semesters of language/culture courses, World Languages students develop the ability to create meaning with the target language when talking about topics related to daily life and current events. They learn to ask and answer intermediate-level questions in a culturally appropriate way and to handle survival situations in other societies. Students will also become competent at using another language to write short, simple communications, compositions, and requests for information about common events and personal topics while developing control of basic sentence structure, vocabulary and verb forms. With these skills, graduates can negotiate interactions with other cultures in a variety of fields, for as writer/activist Rita Mae Brown has noted, “Language is the road map of a culture. It tells you where its people come from and where they are going.”
