About the Program

The Spanish and Education with an Endorsement in P-3 and Teacher of Students with Disabilities program is designed to teach students how to navigate the needs of young children from diverse cultural and linguistic backgrounds and young children with disabilities, in addition to achieving  linguistic proficiency in a second language.

Students will develop their teaching skills by gaining real-world experiences and spending time in the classroom, as well as teaching in a resource room, self-contained setting, or a general education inclusive classroom.

They will also develop language skills and cultural knowledge and apply what they learn as they speak, listen, read, and write in Spanish. Students will explore different topics such as, culture, literature, film, pronunciation, media studies, and business.

Student Outcomes

Our students have gone on to have successful careers in education with the assistance of Monmouth University’s extensive network of local school and district partnerships. At Monmouth, students are introduced to a variety of teaching environments and work with a diverse group of individuals, and small and large groups of students, making them more marketable upon graduation.

Undergraduate Research & Internships

Monmouth University students are immersed in the classroom as early as sophomore year and will have supervised clinical experience including 100 hours in the classroom.

Students have the opportunity to participate in the Teacher Residency Program, study abroad, Clinical Component Courses, Fieldwork for Clinical Experience and Component, Clinical Practice, applying for substitute teaching credentials, and our collaborative P-12 School Partnerships.
