The mission of the Foreign Language Department at Bunker Hill Community College is to expose students to a language and culture in order to enable them to become knowledgeable and active members of a global society. Students learn to use modern foreign languages for meaningful communication in both spoken and written form. Students completing classes in the Foreign Language Program will gradually achieve course-appropriate outcomes in the four basic language skills of speaking, listening comprehension, reading and writing of the target language. Through foreign language study, students develop sensitivity to other cultural and linguistic heritages, and are prepared to participate in a society characterized by linguistic and cultural diversity.
The Foreign Language concentration prepares students to transfer to four-year colleges or universities with a major in a foreign language. Graduates of this concentration may qualify to transfer using benefits of MassTransfer to a four-year state college or University of Massachusetts campus.
