Spanish Education Major

Major Overview

27 credits (minimum) + education course work

Why Spanish education?
The modern/classical languages department cooperates with the School of Education by offering courses required for secondary education in Spanish. Although students may enter the program of study for a Spanish education major at any level, only 300 and 400 level courses count toward a Spanish major. Please note: course work leading to teaching certification may be reconfigured for this area of study. Licensure requirements are subject to change; therefore, students considering teaching in this area should be in continuous contact with the chair of this program and the School of Education for a list of required courses.

Career Options
A majority of our graduates pursue classroom teaching in public or private middle or high schools; others go on to seek advanced degrees in special education, literacy, educational administration, curriculum and instruction, school counseling or school psychology.

High School Preparation
English; European History; Spanish Language; Spanish Literature; World History
