About the certificate in Spanish Heritage Language Education at George Mason University
Students develop familiarity with the linguistic, sociolinguistic, and cultural characteristics of Spanish-speakers in the US. The SHLE certificate prepares educators and affiliated professionals to advocate for heritage speakers of Spanish, design and implement Spanish for Heritage Speakers (SHL) curricula, and develop teaching materials and pedagogies for use in both SHL and mixed classes.
The SHLE certificate may be taken alone or in conjunction with several degree programs offered by the Department of Modern & Classical Languages and the College of Education and Human Development. All coursework included in the SHLE certificate may be applied toward the MA in Spanish; Spanish/Bilingual and Multicultural Education; or Spanish and French.
