Program Overview

On Campus

Spanish is one of the fastest-growing languages in the United States and is reflective of rich and enduring cultures. You’ll develop proficiency in writing, speaking, and understanding Spanish, and much more with the Bachelor of Arts in Spanish. When you major in Spanish education, your language skills will be enhanced and expanded with a deep understanding of the history, cultures, geography, literature, and politics of the Spanish-speaking regions.

With this knowledge in hand, you’ll be prepared to pursue a career in government, military, business, or education. During the program you’ll pursue a Preliminary California Single Subject Teaching Credential.

*Please note: Students need to satisfy/pass the Basic Skills Requirement (e.g., CBEST) and Subject Matter Competency Requirement (e.g., CSET) early (prior to Credential Area Methods coursework) into their programs to avoid interruptions to program progress and/or financial aid arrangements.
