Introduction/What is the Study of Designated World Languages?
This additional endorsement program prepares students to teach designated world language (Chinese, French, German, Japanese, or Spanish) at all levels and must be accompanied by a professional education program and a qualifying endorsement in another content area. See the Elementary Education , Secondary Education , and Special Education and Education Leadership sections of this catalog for program admission, completion, and teacher certificate requirements. A passing score on the World Languages WEST-E test, and proficiency in the designated world language assessed by ACTFL oral and written tests at the Advanced-Low level, are required by the state.
Why Consider an Additional Endorsement in Designated World Languages?
How to Declare (Admission and Declaration Process):
Courses required for a state teaching endorsement must be completed with a grade of C (2.0) or better. The Department of Modern and Classical Languages requires a GPA of 3.0 in the language coursework.
