The Spanish K-12 Teaching option gives high-quality academic preparation to students who wish to become Colorado licensed grades K-12 Spanish teachers. This option is extremely demanding and requires careful planning and advising. Students choosing this option should consult a Modern Languages Department advisor as early as possible in their careers, and should read the Teacher Education Licensure Program  section of this catalog for the steps, specific required education courses, and requirements for applying to the Teacher Education Licensure Program and requirements for completing the program.
