Department Website

The Hispanic Studies Department at the University of Northern Colorado in Greeley offers the degree program: Master of Arts in Foreign Language: Spanish Teaching Emphasis.

Best described as A Confluence of Civilization, Culture, Language, Linguistics, Literature, and Language Acquisition Theory, it equips teachers with in-depth knowledge of all facets of the Spanish-speaking world, as well as the latest methodologies for teaching Spanish in secondary schools. If you need additional information, contact Hispanic Studies Graduate Coordinator, Dr. Joy Landeira.

It is specifically designed for school teachers since it is primarily a summer program. Occasionally, selected courses are offered during the academic year to supplement the summer offerings. By following the prescribed sequence of courses, students may complete the MA in three continuous summers on the Greeley campus. The three-year cycle includes curriculum rotation featuring Spain, Latin America, and Mexico/Hispanic United States. The summer sessions begin with a one-week Pedagogy Workshop, followed by three weeks of course work covering Literature, Civilization/Culture and Advanced Language topics. Following the on-campus course sessions, course work and assignments are submitted and graded electronically.
