The Spanish Education Program at Syracuse University is a joint program in the Department of Languages, Literatures, and Linguistics and in the School of Education's Teaching and Leadership program. Spanish Education at Syracuse University combines course work in Spanish language, literature, linguistics, and culture with the education courses needed to move a student toward certification to teach Spanish in grades 7-12.
The undergraduate program in Spanish Education is offered dually by the College of Arts and Sciences and the School of Education. The Spanish Education major cannot be completed without this dual enrollment. In addition, students formally declare a Spanish major, which would also be listed as a program of study on their record. Students earn one diploma granted by both colleges.
Study abroad in a SU Abroad’s centers in either Santiago, Chile or Madrid, Spain is highly encouraged and is relatively easy to do for Spanish Education students. Courses taken in those centers can be applied toward both the Spanish and the Spanish Education majors.

The Arts and Sciences Records Office, 323 Hall of Languages, also assists students, and participates in the monitoring of progress toward meeting general degree requirements. Spanish Education freshmen or transfers should meet with Marie Sarno - Program Specialist, Teaching and Leadership Programs, (315)443-2685 for appointments) to complete a plan for their upcoming semesters. During this time, students will be assigned to particular semesters for professional courses.
