M.A. in Foreign Languages with a Concentration in Spanish Bilingual-Multicultural Education The MA in foreign languages with a concentration in Spanish/Bilingual-Multicultural Education combines courses in Spanish with courses in multicultural education offered through the School of Education and Human Development.
