Spanish for Teaching Careers
Students interested in licensure as an Oregon middle or secondary teacher with a French or Spanish endorsement may obtain information from the UO College of Education UOTeach program.
Application for admission to the College of Education Middle/Secondary program is usually carried out in the final year of a four-year B.A. program. An excellent preparation for the fifth-year M/S program would be a major in Spanish or French and a minor in a related area (history, geography, another language, etc.).
Students should also consider the interdisciplinary certificate in Second Language Acquisition and Teaching (SLAT). The SLAT program entails about the same number of credits as an undergraduate minor and provides excellent preparation for any teacher certification program.
