Students who major in Spanish may get K-12 certification in cooperation with Eastern University and must take three credits of linguistics in addition to the 39 credits listed here. Credit for student teaching and practicum is granted on a pass/fail basis.
Students take a professional sequence of education courses and participate in secondary school field experiences.
Note: Certification credit hour requirements may cause a student to exceed degree credit hour requirements. Students should read the Field Experience Handbook to determine specific requirements and consult with the secondary education coordinator and department chair.
