Studying a foreign language is required of most liberal arts majors and recommended in many vocational areas. In addition, as more businesses and industries become involved in the international marketplace, students with foreign  language skills may find themselves excelling in the changing economy.

At KCKCC, foreign language courses are infused with cultural content from the humanities and social sciences. By furnishing students with comparative perspectives on history, philosophy, society, and art, foreign language courses contribute significantly to our multicultural awareness and to higher order thinking. This helps hold the human community together, both globally and locally.

Foreign language courses are offered at the KCKCC main campus and the Pioneer Career Center, and some local high schools through a partnership.  In addition, our college currently offers academic instruction in Spanish and French. Tutoring is available through the Academic Resource Center free of charge.

For students with a previous experience in Spanish (middle school and/or high school), KCKCC has a Foreign Language Placement Exam. Students with 3 or more years of study are encouraged to take this test to determine proper placement in the sequence. We also provide an opportunity to earn college credit by examination. For more information, please contact the program coordinator at 913-288-7382.
