The MAT in Spanish is designed for individuals already teaching Spanish, but also is open to prospective teachers at the K-12 school level. Credits from World Languages Institute courses may be applied towards state certification and/or continued professional development. Teachers are required to complete successfully at least two Spanish courses in the World Languages Institute before applying to the MAT program. Details are available at the Department of Spanish and Portuguese or its web site at http://span-port.rutgers.edu.
