A graduate program in education for teacher certification is available to students who receive a B.A. in Spanish from our department.
The foreign language education program offers a Bachelor of Arts degree for students seeking certification to teach Spanish in grades 7-12. Completion of the content area courses in the foreign language area, in conjunction with the professional education courses and field experiences, results in the awarding of a Bachelor of Arts (B.A.) degree with a double major in foreign language education and Spanish.
