Foreign Language Teacher Preparation Minor

Return to {$returnto_text} Return to: Schools & Departments

The interdisciplinary minor in Foreign Language Teacher Preparation provides initial training for Classical and Modern Language students who want to explore teaching languages but who do not seek K-12 teacher certification. The minor emphasizes linguistic knowledge (how languages work), educational theory (how people learn), with advanced written and oral skills in the target language. It also features a high impact learning experience related to language and culture. [NOTE: Completion of this minor does not result in teaching certification.]

Program Requirements

This minor requires the successful completion of 18-21 credit hours as described below.

Select one high impact experience (2-3 credits):


ED 393 - Clinical Experiences in Teaching  and ED 394 - Experiences in Classroom Teaching  must be taken together; for ED 394, the field experience placement and supervision is to be arranged, monitored and evaluated by CML rather than ED.

A maximum of two courses (4-8 credit hours) may double count for this minor and any major.

No grade of “D” will be accepted toward the Foreign Language Teacher Preparation minor.
