This program is specifically designed for licensed Spanish teachers who are currently teaching. It is also designed for those employed in a related field who want to further their education in pedagogy and Spanish language and culture, but are not seeking licensure to teach. It is critical that students have access to a classroom or a site in order to conduct their final applied research project. Students in the Spanish Language and Culture for Educators (SLC) program are exposed to the Spanish culture and life in Europe and in the United States. Candidates to the program should be comfortable interacting with people from other cultures and backgrounds and should be enthusiastic about improving their Spanish language skills.

Students who apply to the program are expected to demonstrate a B2 level of Spanish according to the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages. In addition, all applicants must take the Graduate Record Examination (GRE). All courses taught by USAL faculty will be in Spanish. For international students, TOEFL or IELTS is necessary. The faculty for the program will consist of professors from both universities who will work collaboratively to provide students with a rewarding experience.
