The Bachelor of Arts in Spanish Education provides a foundation of oral and written Spanish skills; an introduction to basic linguistic theory; and study of Spanish and Spanish-American civilization, culture and literature. Spanish Education majors complete SPAN 4703 Foreign Language Pedagogy, which prepares them for their licensure examinations and teaches the methodology appropriate to Spanish language instruction, before their internship year. During their internship year, the education courses, the required field experiences, and the teaching internship, during which they are mentored by an experienced secondary English teacher and visited by a Tech supervising professor, give Spanish Education graduates the pedagogical skills that they need to become successful K-12 teachers.
Many Spanish Education majors complete the four TESOL courses that allow them to add an Arkansas ESL endorsement to their teaching licenses.
