COVID-19 Campus Update

As public health concerns surrounding COVID-19 continue to grow, Community College of Philadelphia has made the careful decision to move coursework to online or other remote alternatives, beginning March 30 through the end of the spring semester, and to keep Main Campus and its Regional Centers closed through at least May 6, 2020. All courses remain suspended through March 30, 2020. Students will receive details on coursework from individual instructors. Faculty and staff will be issued guidance by supervisors. At this time, the commencement ceremony for spring 2020 is postponed. The College will continue to update you via email, web updates and text alerts as this situation evolves during the closure. During this time, please follow all CDC guidelines for preventing the spread of this virus and remaining healthy, including hygiene recommendations, social distancing practices and remaining home when you are sick.

World Languages Department

The mission of the World Languages Department is to provide an engaging teaching and learning environment for students to gain language proficiency in several common world languages. The Department offers lower-division, transfer-level courses in seven languages: Spanish, French, Italian, Arabic, Swahili, Chinese and Japanese. Our language courses provide students with a strong base in all of the skills essential to competent communication in the target languages: listening, speaking, writing, reading and culture. Through the study of languages, students develop an awareness of the experiences of others, an understanding of their unique ways of life, and a recognition and respect for their diversity and contributions to the world.

Language courses are taught by well-credentialed, caring, passionate faculty on four campuses and neighborhood sites, catering to a diverse student body. Classes are taught in a variety of modalities including traditional face-to-face and hybrid. The Department offers a number of options to complete a semester course in 7 weeks, 10 weeks or the more traditional 15-week session. Our courses are offered once, twice or three times a week to accommodate the varying needs of our students. Students who successfully complete our courses will be well prepared to continue their language study at transfer institutions.
