Modern Language Major with K-12 Foreign Language Licensure


Return to Academic Programs Return to: Academic Programs

Degree-seeking candidates who wish to obtain Colorado licensure for K-12 Foreign Language must earn a Bachelor of Arts (B.A.) degree in Modem Languages. Candidates must complete 42 credit hours in their language concentration (French, German, or Spanish) or an extended major that requires an additional 18 credit hours at the 2000-level or above in a different secondary language for a total of 60 credit hours. The curriculum focuses on the Colorado Model Content Standards for Foreign Languages and prepares licensure candidates to pass the required content test. Students completing the K-12 licensure coursework are not required to have a minor.

Candidates seeking teacher licensure must also gain admission to the Teacher Education Program. The application form for the program must be completed by attending an Application Meeting during the semester prior to the first semester of education course work. Application Meetings are scheduled by the Teacher Application Center (WC 136). Formal admission must be obtained BEFORE Methods coursework can be taken and provisional admission must be obtained before any field experience placement will be made.
