The Summer Language Institute is a fascinating program that enables you to strengthen your language skills and cultural understanding, and to maximize your potential as a teacher. Complete your Master of Arts in Spanish Language Teaching abroad in just five three-week sessions, spaced over three summers. Or, join us as a non-degree-seeking student and earn graduate credits for continuing education and professional development.
You will have the opportunity to learn from national and international specialists, alongside your fellow language teachers from around the country. Our Spanish program is held at Southern Oregon University’s sister university in Guanajuato, Mexico, the Universidad de Guanajuato. This partnership allows our students to immerse themselves in the local language and culture during their time in the program.
Master’s candidates must be currently teaching Spanish at the elementary, middle school, high school, or college level and must have taught for at least one year. Non-degree-seeking applicants must have a Bachelor’s degree and either be a current language teacher or pursuing a teaching career.
We will begin accepting applications for Summer 2023 on September 15th, 2022! Please visit our application information page for directions on how to apply, and feel free to contact us with any questions you may have. We aim to review and notify applicants of admissions decisions no later than early March, depending on when they are received. Furthermore, if applications are completed far enough in advance of the March 1st priority deadline to allow us to review them early, we will inform applicants of a decision as soon as possible whenever feasible.
