Meeting Twenty-First-Century Needs: Spanish for the Professions as the Future of Spanish Graduate Education?
Harsma, Elizabeth A.
Hispania, v100 n5 p145-152 2017
A possible model for future graduate education, the Spanish for the Professions, Master of Science program, which some may consider a terminal degree, was designed to meet the growing need for employees with a high-level of Spanish language proficiency and cultural competency. This exploration of the fully online Spanish for the Professions graduate program outlines program development and provides a preliminary evaluation of the program's ability to respond to learners' needs and job market demand. Program enrollment and a preliminary qualitative assessment provide evidence that the program is a sustainable and adaptive model for Spanish graduate education in the twenty-first century.
