Studying a Foreign Language Abroad

Want the ultimate learning experience? Brookhaven College's Multinational Academic Program for Study Abroad allows students to study a language in a foreign country while earning college credit! Latin America, Germany, Brazil and China are just a few of the places students have the opportunity to visit.

Languages and the New Core Curriculum

In order to be eligible for a bachelor's degree at a Texas public college or university, you must first complete a Core curriculum of courses.

Your Core curriculum completed at Brookhaven College-- or any other school within the District-- is guaranteed to transfer to any public Texas college or university.

Language courses satisfy not one, but two Core requirements under the DCCCD Core curriculum.

  • A foreign language course with the course number 1411 or 1412 satisfies the "Tier 1: Speaking and Listening" Core curriculum requirement.
  • A foreign language course with the course number 2311, 2312, 2321, 2322 or 2323 satisfies the "Tier 2: Humanity, Creativity, and the Aesthetic Experience" Core curriculum.
