Spanish, Subject Matter Preparation

The Subject Matter Preparation Program in Spanish is designed for students interested in a career in teaching Spanish at the secondary school level. It satisfies the requirements set by the State Commission on Teacher Credentialing for demonstrating substantive preparation in the subject matter field of Spanish. Completion of an approved waiver program or passing The National Teachers Examination in the subject matter field fulfills one part of the requirements leading to the Single Subject Teaching Credential in Spanish. While the waiver in Spanish is not an academic major, credits earned toward a major in Spanish can be used to meet most of the requirements of the waiver program. Students interested in pursuing a teaching career at the secondary level should meet regularly with the designated departmental waiver program advisor.
