What will I learn?

Associate of Arts-Direct Transfer (AA-DTA): Seattle Central has Direct Transfer Agreements (DTA) with most 4-year colleges and universities in Washington State, ensuring that the credits you earn will easily transfer toward your bachelor’s degree.

World Languages

The world languages program at Seattle Central provides the opportunity for students intending to transfer to a four–year college or university as well as community members to begin study of languages and cultures. World language courses address speaking, listening comprehension, reading, and writing.

Cultural study emphasizes the naturally global and multicultural perspectives inherent in the study of world languages. Students who continue their language studies are well-prepared when they transfer to destination institutions. Many students also decide to volunteer, travel or work in countries where the language is spoken and find that they are able to communicate successfully.
