Spanish Education

Pitt-Greensburg Spanish Education majors

The Power of One World

Open a new world of language and culture to countless students; you can be part of the growth of multilingual culture in schools.

Our Spanish Education majors are strongly encouraged and receive support to study abroad in a Spanish-speaking country to immerse themselves in the language and culture. Step into the classroom the second semester of your freshman year, where you will hone your skills to touch the lives of Pre K-grade 12 students of all learning levels.

As part of our award-winning SPSEA education club, you will benefit from professional development, activities with Pre K-12 students, and valuable networking opportunities.

As an educator, you have the power to change the world, one student at a time.
