We also offer general health courses (in-person) as well as Global Health (all-online).

With a drive to become the premiere spot for language learning in the state of Colorado, the World Languages Department at Pine Creek fosters an environment of proficiency-oriented language instruction, giving students the communicative and intercultural skills they need to navigate their ways through an ever-changing global society.
The focus of instruction is communication as students gain the language skills required to tackle real-world tasks they might encounter in the target countries.
Through the process of using language to investigate the products, practices, and perspectives of the studied cultures, students also gain a better understanding of their own cultures and how they themselves fit into the world at large.
