The Spanish language concentration consists of 30 credit hours; at least 18 of the credit hours must be at the upper division (300 or 400) level. It is strongly suggested that teacher candidates work closely with an advisor in all concentration planning.
Language courses must be taken in sequence and 300 level language is a pre-requisite for all other courses. Therefore, careful scheduling of courses for this concentration will be necessary. All teacher candidates pursuing this concentration should initially take the CLEP exam to receive credit for prior work and knowledge in Spanish, as well as to determine initial level of coursework. A fee is required for this exam. Information about the exam is available in the Admissions Office and through the Modern and Classical Language Department.
Study abroad is encouraged, especially in summer. More information can be found through the International Education Office. The office also provides alternative placement testing for heritage speakers.
