To be admitted to the Master’s program in Spanish Teaching, students must possess a Baccalaureate Degree in Spanish or its equivalent from an accredited college or university with a 3.0 grade point average or better for regular admission. In most cases, candidates are expected to have at least one year of secondary teaching experience prior to admission to the program. Students are expected to have already attained written and spoken command of Spanish, and all courses, with the exception of some Pedagogy courses, are taught in Spanish. The UNC Graduate School processes all graduate applications and fees and their "Master’s Degree Admission Standards" and their additional regulations and policies apply to all graduate students: minimum grade point average, years to completion, continuous registration policy, resident/non-resident status, and the requirement that all graduate students must take SPAN 600 Spanish Research Methods prior to graduation. The UNC Graduate School also processes and awards financial aid, fellowship and scholarship monies, particularly to students in their first year of study.
Applicants must collect all the materials required for admission eligibility and submit them together with the $50 application fee ($ 60 international students). These include a completed application, two transcripts from all college level institutions ever attended, as well as three letters of recommendation, and GRE and/or TOEFL scores are required for those students applying from outside the United States. Applicants should request that official GRE and/or TOEFL score reports be submitted with the Graduate School application materials. Failure to follow these procedures may delay handling of the application. A Graduate Study application packet, the UNC Catalog, and more information on the University of Northern Colorado are available on the Graduate School Web site and from the Graduate School, (970) 351-2831 or 1-800-776-4723.
