George Mason's Department of Modern & Classical Languages announces a new graduate certificate in Spanish Heritage Language Education, launching late August 2021 (application deadline August 1). This 15-credit program can be completed fully online.

Students develop familiarity with the linguistic, sociolinguistic, and cultural characteristics of Spanish-speakers in the US; heritage language educational policy and practice; and social justice-oriented, antiracist approaches to teaching Spanish. The certificate prepares educators and affiliated professionals to advocate for heritage speakers of Spanish as well as to develop and implement teaching curricula, materials, and pedagogies for Spanish heritage language education.

The certificate may be completed as a stand-along program or as an add-on to an MA with a concentration in Spanish. Educators seeking professional development opportunities and graduate students at other universities are also welcome to enroll in individual courses as non-degree students.
