Foreign Language Spanish Education Major (BA)
The foreign language Spanish education major at Lynchburg prepares undergraduates to teach the language and cultures of the Spanish-speaking world to pre-K-12 students. There are courses in language, culture, literature, and linguistics as well as teaching methods for foreign languages.
Students are also encouraged to study abroad in a Spanish-speaking country. Spanish program faculty often take students on Winter Term study abroad trips to Chile. On these trips, they work with Chilean education students to teach English lessons at a summer camp for Chilean children. Students have also traveled to Costa Rica, Ecuador, and Mexico. Foreign language Spanish education majors also get the chance to work as tutors in our Modern Language Resource Center and go on internships at local schools.
A foreign language Spanish education degree leads to teaching licensure in the Commonwealth of Virginia, which is required to teach in Virginia schools.
