Foreign Language Education Certification

For Teachers

For those seeking a teaching certificate, the requirement is 40 hours in French, German, or Spanish. This may include 6 hours in a second foreign language. 

A second teaching field (now called an endorsement) in another foreign language requires an additional 24 hours. 

Teacher candidates also take Foreign Language Methods for Elementary and Secondary schools, taught by the Modern Language Department.
