The Major and the Minors in Spanish

On a slow day in a literature class many years ago, Brother Hunsaker remembers being startled into alertness by something his professor had said.  The startling statement was, "Come on people, you're going to be teaching this some day!"  You might want to keep that in mind!  Choosing to major in Spanish is a choice to become a teacher. As you progress through the major, keep your future students in mind. Remember, it's not about you, it's about them. Prepare now to serve them well.

Information on coursework for the BA in Spanish Education, for the Minor in Spanish Education, and for the Minor in Spanish is available in the BYU-Idaho Catalog.

Beyond the Classroom

We encourage you to explore learning opportunities beyond the classroom.  For example, you may want to consider getting involved with the Spanish Academic Society, Sigma Delta Pi.  You might also consider a study abroad program or service opportunties.  See a member of the Spanish faculty for more information.

Teacher Education

Information on student teaching, the education core, and on other approved teaching minors is available here.
