The Associate in Arts in Spanish for Transfer Degree is designed for students desiring advanced degrees in Spanish. Los Medanos College Spanish courses meet the lower division transfer requirements for Spanish. The curriculum includes the first and second year requirements for transfer to a CSU. A baccalaureate degree is the recommended preparation for those considering professional careers in Spanish at a CSU.

  1. Be academically prepared to transfer to a Spanish program at a four-year university.
  2. Demonstrate the ability to understand, speak, read and write using high-intermediate levels of Spanish skills necessary for careers in Spanish and related fields.

“(1) Completion of 60 semester units or 90 quarter units that are eligible for transfer to the California State University, including both of the following:
