Endorsement in the Teaching of Spanish

Endorsement is available to students obtaining a full license in an approved UIC Teacher Education major. To teach Spanish as a second subject in Illinois public schools one must apply for and receive an Endorsement from the State Board of Education and meet all of the additional course and other requirements the Board has established.

The number of credit hours required for a second subject endorsement in Spanish is 24.

The teaching license is not automatically awarded upon successful completion of license and degree requirements. Before the license is issued, the candidate must file an application with the State of Illinois and take a subject content examination administered by the State Board of Education. For information on application procedures, contact the Council on Teacher Education in the College of Education.
