Teacher Certification

Spanish/Secondary Education

Students may combine the Spanish linguistics option with a second major in world language education to earn teacher certification. Students must satisfy a set of Selective Admission requirements to become eligible for admission to the College of Education. Information and the College of Education Major Exploration Workshop schedule can be found here. A graduate program in education for teacher certification is also available to students who earn a B.A. in Spanish from our department.

The World Languages Education program offers a Bachelor of Arts degree for students seeking certification to teach Spanish in grades Pre-K through 12. Completion of the content area courses in the world 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 World Languages Education and Spanish.
