An Important Note about Language Courses:
If you do plan to go on and earn a Global Studies BA, it is strongly recommended that you take both the 2A and 2B semesters of a language course, if possible, while you are still at LPC. However, some universities want you to be taking a language that matches your global area of concentration. If you took Spanish in high school but want to focus on Asia for your BA, it would be better to start with an Asian language online through the California Virtual Campus. Consult with a counselor concerning the requirements at the universities to which you may transfer.
