ISU Impact of Master of Arts Spanish Program
In this episode Cathleen Tarp, Associate Professor of Spanish, joins Kandi Turley-Ames to discuss the impact the new Master of Arts Spanish program makes on Idaho students and students across the country because of its accessibility as one of the only fully online programs in the country. The program celebrated its first graduates in December. They come from a variety of places and backgrounds, but have formed lasting bonds because of their shared passion for the Spanish language and their connection as Bengals. In the later half of the episode Catie Anderson, one of the inaugural cohort of Master of Arts Spanish graduates, shares how the program worked with her schedule as a teacher and mother, and it allowed her to have more professional opportunities.
