Note:

  • Candidates for certification must earn satisfactory scores on a proficiency test in Spanish.

This eight-semester plan (see important details) is intended to guide a first-year student through a four-year undergraduate career, with completion of an academic major and all college-wide degree requirements. The plan is designed as an advising tool – a starting point for careful discussions between a student and his/her academic adviser. In consultation, the student and adviser will adjust the plan to accommodate the student’s prerequisite needs, transferred credits, and other such variables.

Students are responsible for reviewing their Progress Reports each semester to track their own progress toward degree requirements.

Note:

  • This template presupposes that the entry point into the Spanish Secondary Ed Major is SPA301 or SPA315 and that the candidate enters in the Fall semester of second year. Students entering this program in the Spring may encounter delays in graduation because of Fall-only scheduling of some Secondary Education classes.
