K-12 Teaching Majors

The Teacher Certification Programs in French, German, Japanese and Spanish are designed to prepare undergraduate and post-baccalaureate students for careers as World language teachers in elementary and secondary (K-12) school settings. Graduates of this program:

  • demonstrate a high level of language competency and cross-cultural awareness.
  • demonstrate that they know how to plan, prepare, and present lessons that offer students a range of opportunities to learn as defined by the national Standards for World Language Learning(1998).
  • committed to all students and their learning, celebrate diversity and work effectively with diverseĀ  students, parents, and community members.
  • reflective professionals who use technology effectively and who demonstrate professional dispositions and communication skills.
  • K-12 certification programs in each of the four languages address the same core components (language, literature, civilization) and include required study abroad and capstone experiences.

The Department of World Languages is part of the College of Arts & Sciences, 214 Pray-Harrold
