French K-12 Teaching Option

The French Teaching major is designed for students who wish to become licensed to teach French in grades K-12. Upon completion of the degree, students are eligible for licensure in the state of Montana. Secondary education students are encouraged to pursue a teaching minor in an additional content area and should contact an advisor for details. Obtaining a teaching minor may require more than eight semesters. Students will be required to pass a language proficiency test administered by the Modern Languages Department prior to being approved for student teaching.
