Spanish Language Certificate

This comprehensive program provides you with the tools you need to communicate effectively in Spanish. Whether you are interested in learning Spanish for work, travel or socializing, our courses provide you with the essential language skills and vocabulary to communicate with confidence. In addition, you obtain your certified oral proficiency rating from the renowned American Council on the Teaching of Foreign Languages (ACTFL), recognized by government agencies and employers nationwide.

To enroll in the certificate program, simply register for your first Spanish course!

Note: The UWM SCE Spanish Certificate program is noncredit and cannot be used for teaching certification.  This is a noncredit enrichment program. Progress and courses completed with UWM-SCE Languages are marked by Continuing Education Units. CEUs are not transferable to college or university transcripts. The Spanish Certificate Program is not applicable towards any teaching certifications or licensures.

Earn the certificate by completing Spanish I-VI core courses, one elective course and satisfactorily fulfilling the ACTFL Oral Proficiency Interview Test within a three-year period.  You may complete your core coursework in either face-to-face or online sessions.  Face-to-face and online courses can be interchanged.  If you choose to take most of your core courses in face-to-face sessions, you must also complete an elective course (online students are exempt from this requirement).

You must complete the ACTFL OPI after your core coursework is finished.  The ACTFL OPI is a proctored, telephonic interview that can either take place at SCE’s offices in downtown Milwaukee or remotely (restrictions apply).

Single courses can be taken without the pursuit of the certificate.
