Spanish is the second most spoken language in the world as well as in the United States.  Nearly 14% of the United States has Spanish as their first spoken language and this population is expected to continue to grow.  Spanish teachers are in extremely high demand at this time in Wisconsin as well as in other states.  We have 100% placement of our Spanish Education majors immediatly following certification.  Many Spanish-speakers are migrating to the United States and the need for Spanish-speaking teachers and professionals to work with these populations is in high demand.
