Spain is facing a transformation of increasing ethnic heterogeneity. This has had important impacts on diverse institutions, and specifically the Spanish school system, which is challenged to offer education for students from diverse ethnic groups. Ethnic diversity in the classroom, intercultural and civic education, and the initial education of future teachers are the focus of analysis from the perspectives of sociology, anthropology, psychology, philosophy, and pedagogy: this paper is from the approach of educational psychology. The purpose is to analyse student teachers’ attitudes and perceptions towards ethnic diversity, and to review the effect of courses in each level of courses in the specialities of Hearing & Speech, Special Education, Infant Education and Primary Education.
