The Department's Master of Arts in Teaching Spanish was developed in response to the increased need in North Shore communities for well-trained and licensed Spanish teachers at both the elementary (P-6) and secondary (5-12) levels, this program meets the pedagogical and content standards of the Massachusetts Department of Education for licensure at the initial level. Content area courses, conducted entirely in Spanish, give students an overview of literatures, cultures, linguistics, and teaching methodology.

The Department has also recently developed graduate-level content courses in French, including a course on Francophone African & Caribbean Literature and a course on the culture and literature of Qu├ębec. These courses will be offered periodically and are aimed at providing professional development experiences for area teachers of French. For more information, contact Dr. Elizabeth Blood
