Bachelor of Science in Education in Foreign Language Education

Meet the needs of our changing and global world — and prepare others to do the same — with a degree in foreign language education. Our program will prepare you to teach French, German or Spanish to students in prekindergarten through grade 12.

Program Overview

As a foreign language education major, you may pursue a Bachelor of Science in Education (B.S.E.) from the School of Education and Health Sciences or a Bachelor of Arts (B.A.) from the College of Arts and Sciences through the dual degree program. Regardless of which program you choose, you will receive multiage licensure, PreK–12, in French, German or Spanish.

In our programs, you will develop real-world proficiency in reading, listening, speaking and writing, as well as learn to work successfully in cross-cultural environments. A variety of learning and language-acquisition opportunities are available and you are encouraged to spend at least one summer practicing your language skills during an immersion study abroad experience.

In order to be approved for student teaching and recommended for licensure, you must maintain a 2.5 grade point average overall, both in professional education courses and in your teaching field.
