Faculty

Timothy Crow, Associate Professor

Martin Pflug, Assistant Professor

 

The Spanish program introduces students to the Spanish language and Hispanic culture. The various courses offered enable students to lay the groundwork for fluency in Spanish and to enhance practical language skills for specific career purposes.

 

Students may choose either the Liberal Arts Minor or the Teacher Certification (Ages 6-13 or 10-21) Minor. Students may elect to submit for approval a proposal for a Spanish Studies Individually Designed Major in conjunction with UW-Superior’s cooperating institution in San José, Costa Rica. 

 

The Spanish program seeks to educate students to become more effective participants in the global community by promoting international and ethnic awareness and sensitivity to other cultures.

Notes:
To be certified, a Spanish Teacher Certification Minor must pass Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction certification requirements. To reach the mandated level of language competence, all Spanish Teacher Certification Minors will be required to spend at least one month at ICADS in Costa Rica (or to participate in an alternative 30-day immersion experience).  Normally, a student must complete Spanish 300 at UW-Superior before participating in a Spanish Study Abroad program.
