Modern Languages

Modern Language Study is the study of another language and the culture of its people. Iowa Central Community College believes that the opportunity to study another language must be offered. Through this study the students will improve their ability to communicate, not only in the newly acquired language, but also in their own dialect. The college further believes that Modern Language Education develops an understanding of other cultures through its international focus. Modern Education provides students with a well-rounded, broad-based education allowing them to pursue life’s goals.
