Academic Programs of Study
Our Spanish education program will teach you the Spanish language and culture while providing you with the certification you need to share your knowledge with students in kindergarten through 12th grade. Our program is approved by the Pennsylvania Department of Education and guided by the national standards of the American Council on the Teaching of Foreign Languages.
Courses focus on not only the language but also the culture, literature, and art of Spanish-speaking civilizations. Classroom instruction is reinforced with on- and off-campus cultural events and study abroad opportunities. Our program is designed for both native Spanish-speakers and those who aren't familiar with the language.
More About This Degree
I opened a brand new Planet Fitness location as General Manager.
After graduating from Marywood in 2011 with a bachelor’s degree in Exercise Science/Physical Activity, I immediately entered the professional fitness world as a personal trainer and fitness instructor at Planet Fitness in the Philadelphia area. Shortly thereafter, I was offered a chance to open a brand new Planet Fitness location as General Manager.
Opening a new location from the ground up was a difficult and time consuming task. However, my four years at Marywood gave me the tools and confidence I needed to tackle this challenge. The education I received in the classroom provided me with the knowledge needed to train clients and effectively manage a fitness club. Being a four-year member of Marywood’s Lacrosse team has also taught me great leadership and interpersonal skills which are applied daily, and will continue to help me as my career grows.
Wherever my career takes me, whether it is in fitness club ownership, or personal training, I know that everything I learned at Marywood will be with me every step of the way.
