Cincinnati State Adding German, Mandarin And Conversational French
Cincinnati State will be adding German, Mandarin Chinese and Conversational French to its lineup of foreign language offerings, beginning with the 2013 Fall Semester.
All three courses, along with the Spanish and the traditional French language sequences that the College has long offered, are open to members of the general public (enrolled as non-degree seeking students) as well as Cincinnati State students.
“We decided to expand our language offerings to appeal to individuals who plan to travel to Europe, China, Central and South America on business or for pleasure,” said Robbin Hoopes, Dean of the Humanities and Sciences Division at Cincinnati State.
“What we’re hearing from our co-op partners and advisory boards is that as their businesses become increasingly international, they value graduates who demonstrate language skills,” Hoopes added. “Our research also tells us there is a demand for cost-effective language instruction in an academic setting.”
The new courses are:
- Conversational French (HUM 198-001). This is a 3 credit-hour class that will meet from 10 a.m. – 11:15 a.m. Monday and Wednesday. The instructor has requested French 101 as pre-requisite or previous conversational French experience.
- German 1 (HUM 198-201). This is a 4 credit hour course, meeting from 6 p.m. – 7:50 p.m. Tuesday and Thursday. There is no prerequisite.
- Mandarin 1 (HUM 198-202). This is a 4 credit hour course, meeting from 6 p.m. – 7:50 p.m. Monday and Wednesday. There is no prerequisite.
Cost for all three courses is $145.30 per semester credit hour. None of the courses will have a lab fee.
