The combined Bachelor of Arts in Spanish and Latin American Languages/Master of Education in Secondary Education offers undergraduate students the opportunity to complete both the BA and MEd degrees within five years. Designed for students who wish to teach Spanish language after graduation, the combined degree provides training and development in pedagogy and leads to teacher licensure in DC public schools for grades K–12.

Eligible students complete six graduate credits through GW’s Graduate School of Education and Human Development during their senior year of college. Interested students must apply for and gain admission to the master's program in their junior year, provided they are progressing satisfactorily in meeting the Spanish major requirements.
