Program Information

Degrees Offered:

Master of Arts in Education - Spanish Education

Format: Online

Program Description:

The MAE in Spanish Education is designed for K-12 Spanish teachers who would like to continue their education through the study of an online graduate degree in Spanish education.  The program consists of 18 hours of Spanish coursework and 18 hours of education-related coursework primarily focused on second language acquisition and foreign language pedagogy.  Students will have the option of either completing a 6-hour thesis or combining Spanish courses with summer study abroad options.

This graduate program is unique because it is one of the few online programs in the country that focuses on Spanish education.  The online format—along with potential study abroad options—enables students to conveniently focus on both their Spanish proficiency as well as their knowledge of foreign and second language pedagogy.

The MAE in Spanish Education would enable graduates to pursue additional career opportunities teaching Spanish at a community college or serve as lecturers and/or adjuncts at colleges and universities.  It would also enable graduates to pursue doctoral programs in education.  It should be noted that this degree is not designed for students who are interested in obtaining a doctoral degree in Spanish.
