Spanish Minor

The Spanish Program offers a Spanish minor and teaching certification in Middle Childhood/Early Adolescence.  The minor courses are chosen to foster competency in understanding, speaking, writing, and reading Spanish according to ACTFL oral proficiency standards. Cultural awareness is also an important objective for students choosing to minor in Spanish.  A placement test is required for those students who have had Spanish classes and are entering their first Spanish class at Silver Lake College.  Immersion experiences are available to all students and are required for teaching licensure.
