Coursework in the Secondary World Languages program is designed to provide a coherent learning experience that culminates in a successful student teaching semester. The program may be started in either fall or spring semester. Two courses (EDUC 3013 and EDUC 4112) may be taken prior to admission to the program or in the first two semesters.
Admission to the teacher licensure program is competitive and satisfying the minimum criteria does not guarantee acceptance. Please also note that some requirements will take longer than others to complete. All applicants should plan accordingly. To be considered for admission, applicants must meet the following:
Please refer to the Post-BA Application Instructions for the application process and all application materials.
If you are a current CU graduate student or applying to a CU gradute program in addition to the licensure program, please follow these Application Instructions.
All application materials must be submitted by 5 p.m. on the deadline in order to be considered.
Two education courses, EDUC 3013 and EDUC 4112, are required for the program but may be taken prior to admission. In addition to the School of Education requirements, Secondary World Languages candidates must satisfy Content Requirements to prepare them in the necessary content knowledge.
Content Requirements do not need to be completed in order to apply to the program. However, all requirements must be satisfied prior to the student teaching semester. Candidates that carefully plan their schedule can satisfy degree requirements and education requirements simultaneously.
In the final semester, candidates student teach for a minimum of 17 weeks. This involves a full-time (all day) commitment. To student teach, candidates must complete all course requirements and pass a state-approved content area licensure exam prior to the Student Teaching semester.
