    Is Liberty University starting education in Spanish?

    I saw the advertisement in Spanish, but not sure if they are teaching in Spanish as well.

    Looks like they are beginning to offer quite a bit of content and a few degrees conducted in a bilingual format. Here is a paste from their website:

    Liberty University En Español and Liberty University Online Academy (LUOA), in partnership with the National Hispanic Christian Leadership Conference (NHCLC), have announced the addition of bilingual courses for grade 3 through the master level.

    Students can choose from LUOA courses (grades 3-12), the Advanced Certificate in Biblical Studies, Associate of Arts in Religion, Master of Arts in Pastoral Counseling or the Master of Arts in Christian Leadership, all offered in Spanish* beginning in the fall.

    The correct translation is: "Start today with a free course"

    I think they are making an effort to promote their services to the Spanish speaking community. However, the site still needs some work (many areas are still in English and some grammar mistakes) and their claim of being the only US-based university offering online degrees completely taught in Spanish is inaccurate. Lots of emphasis on how to apply for financial aid: Inicio | Liberty University Online

    I believe UTEP offers an online bilingual MFA program, I think it's the only one of it's kind.

    While not online, both, the University of Miami and FIU, offer bilingual programs.

    I wonder if they mean that it's the only Christian based programs of that nature? I'm not aware of any others.

    When I was there, Keiser University was finalizing a Bachelor of Arts in Business Administration that was online and entirely in Spanish. A colleague who was a native Miamian joked that it should be called the "Bachelor of Arts in Business Administration for Latino Undergraduates" -- BABALU.
