Our Program

Our education courses build a strong foundation in teaching and learning based on current theory and best practices. Concurrent with their coursework, students spend significant time in field placements during their second, third and fourth years. As a result, our majors are prepared to effectively engage diverse students in a variety of school contexts.

Coursework in French or Spanish covers all aspects of the language, from spoken discourse to written composition, with a focus on the development of target language grammar and expressions. Students also explore culture and civilization by examining literature, films and other cultural products within their social, historical and cultural contexts. Moreover, courses in linguistics, second language acquisition and language teaching methodology round out students' preparation to become successful language educators in today's schools.
