Bachelor of Arts with a Major in Spanish and Latin American Languages, Literatures, and Cultures, and Master of Education 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 combined bachelor of arts with a major in Spanish and master of education in the field of secondary 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 also complete requirements to be eligible for K-12 licensure in foreign 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 the Spanish Department for more details.
