Single Subject Teaching Credential in Spanish

Completion of the Spanish major meets the subject matter competence requirement for the Single Subject Teaching Credential in Spanish. Prospective students should consult the undergraduate Spanish Advisor and the Languages Other Than English (LOTE) Credential Program Advisor early to plan their program.

In addition to meeting the subject matter competence requirement for the teaching credential, prospective teachers of Spanish are also required to complete 45 units of professional preparation in the Single Subject Credential Program, including student teaching. Students may begin the professional preparation courses as early as the junior year. With careful planning, it is possible to complete all of the credential program courses, except for student teaching, as an undergraduate. Courses may also be completed as a post-baccalaureate student. Refer to the Single Subject Teacher Education section of this catalog or the website ( for a description of professional preparation requirements, courses, and application procedures.


The same as for B.A. in Spanish.
