Overview

Because our Spanish Education Program at Fairmont State University is only 31 credits, Spanish Teacher Candidates can easily pair their language studies either with Elementary Education or with another Secondary teaching field (such as English, Mathematics or Social Studies). Being qualified in two teaching fields helps a Teacher Candidate be even more assured of finding a job.

Learning outcomes

Spanish educators are in critical demand in West Virginia and nationwide! With more than forty million Spanish speakers in the US, this language is increasingly prominent, and well trained language teachers can find jobs in every state. In pursuing a degree in Spanish Education, students not only acquire the Spanish language and knowledge of Hispanic cultures, they also grow intellectually and morally as their view of the world is enlarged. 

There is widespread need for Spanish teachers at all levels. In many places, Spanish proficiency has become essential for such professions as social work, criminal justice, business, banking and medical fields. Those who wish to pursue further training as interpreters or translators establish the foundations necessary to continue their studies.
