Our Spanish education majors explore all aspects of the Spanish language. You’ll feel confident in your written and verbal skills with a foreign language as well as your ability to teach it to students in grades K-12. Cuanto más cómodo se siente con el idioma, mejor se va a enseñar.

We offer instruction on listening comprehension, speaking, reading, writing, and cultural competence. This is a fantastic opportunity to become a Spanish teacher, Spanish literature instructor, or Spanish language instructor, with field experience adding real world value to your education. Study abroad opportunities are available, too, if you want to truly immerse yourself in the language and culture. This degree prepares students for professional teacher certification in grades K-12.
