The Modern Languages Department offers a course of study leading to a Bachelor of Arts degree (B.A.) in Spanish Language, Hispanic Literature and Culture.
In addition, Modern Languages has established close ties with the School of Education to prepare students for careers as Spanish teachers. These collaborative courses of study lead to the following degrees:
- B.S. in Adolescence Education – Spanish (7-12)
- M.A.T. in Adolescence Education – Spanish (7-12)
- M.S. in Adolescence Education – Spanish (7-12)
It is also possible to obtain a non-teaching certificate and a minor in Spanish. Both of these options offer effective marketable skills that are in high demand in teaching and business careers, particularly in today’s multilingual and global economies.
