Spanish for the Professions Certificate

Department & Faculty Information  

IMPORTANT NOTICE: The department is not accepting students for the Certificate in Spanish program at this time.

The Certificate in Spanish for the Professions, consisting of 22-38 units, tells potential employers that the recipient is qualified to work with Spanish-speaking members of the community who have limited English proficiency. Designed for individuals who are, or will be, employed in courts, schools, social service bureaucracies, health care facilities, and business enterprises, the certificate program provides students with Spanish language competency in technical fields, enabling them to converse with and serve as translators and interpreters for Spanish-speaking clients. Students majoring or minoring in Spanish may obtain the certificate by completing only the three required upper division certificate courses, in addition to their major or minor program.
