Foreign Languages - World Languages Abroad



The Associated Students of Clark College (ASCC) sponsors the World Languages Abroad program in which faculty members from Clark College Language departments lead summer trips abroad. If you have basic foreign language skills, you can enhance your language studies and earn credit by going abroad on a short term program.
