International Languages

The mission of the International Languages Department is to advance the study of foreign languages in a direction that will serve the educational needs of a diverse community. Our programs encompass both language proficiency and cultural understanding so that students may become active participants in our global society. 


We offer courses in Spanish, Italian, French, German, and Japanese languages. The International Language Resource Centers, equipped with state-of-the-art audiovisual and technological support on both the Oceanside and San Elijo campuses, help augment the students' language learning experience.

We offer on site and online courses.

Student clubs promote cultural events, organize fundraising projects, and plan social activities on campus and in the community.

* Due to low enrollments, we have had to deactivate our Chinese program indefinitely.
