Dual BA with a Major in Spanish and Latin American Languages, Literatures, and Cultures and MEd in Secondary Education with a Concentration in Foreign Language Education
Columbian College's Department of Romance, German, and Slavic Languages and Literatures and the Graduate School of Education and Human Development offer a dual bachelor of arts with a major in Spanish and master of education in the field of secondary education with a concentration in foreign language education. Undergraduate students take 6 graduate credits as part of their degree program, thereby decreasing the number of credits normally required for the master's degree. Students in the combined program must complete all requirements for both degrees. By completing the requirements for the MEd, students are eligible for K-12 licensure in world language teaching, Spanish.
Students apply for and gain admission to the master's program in their junior year, assuming they are progressing satisfactorily in meeting Spanish content area requirements. Consult Spanish & Latin American Languages, Literatures & Cultures for more details.
