Program Overview

Program Overview

Get ready to experience different cultures from the inside out. As the ability to converse in Spanish is increasing in importance in the U.S. and worldwide, it's no secret that with a background in this language, you'll be better equipped for your profession — and for service. While studying here and abroad, you'll learn to think more critically — and to act with compassion. You'll learn to know and care about your neighbor across the street and the one across the world. 

Our Spanish Teaching degree combines the best of two worlds: our respected education program and a course of study involving language, geography and literature. We teach our classes in Spanish to prepare you for a career where you, as a teacher, will do the same.
