What is Foreign Language Emphasis: General Transfer Major?

This program is designed for students who intend to transfer to senior institutions of higher education to complete requirements for Bachelor of Art degrees. The general transfer major is subdivided into different emphases. Students desiring other curricula (e.g. history, communications, psychology, human services, etc.) may design their own programs within the framework of the following general requirements. Those students desiring to transfer upon completion of the Associate of Art degree should consult the academic advisor and refer to the senior institution catalog before beginning one of the emphases

What will I learn?

All students who complete a degree designated as a Tennessee Transfer Pathway will be able to do the following:

  1. Communicate effectively through oral and written modes, using conventions appropriate to their audience and purpose, including critical listening, reading, and research skills.
  2. Evaluate the significance of humanity’s cultural heritage and diversity and its development in a historical and/or global context through critical and analytical methodologies.
  3. Connect knowledge of social and cultural institutions to issues of personal or public   importance.
  4. Analyze historical and contemporary issues by drawing on historical contexts.
  5. Demonstrate a broad understanding of scientific principles and concepts.
  6. Apply relevant mathematical modeling to a variety of applied or theoretical problems.
In addition, students who complete the foreign language emphasis will understand the basic factors affecting the target language.

What are my options to pay for this degree?
