This program is designed for students who want to teach French for proficiency in grades K-12. With on-campus courses focusing on acquiring linguistic and cultural skills and a required Study-Abroad, you will master the French language, developing competency in listening, speaking, reading, and writing in authentic cultural settings. Students also take education courses in planning, instruction, management, and professionalism, and pursue applied learning experiences. In a required Study-Abroad, you will have the opportunity to solidify your language skills and to discover French civilization first-hand. French education majors develop a dynamic Christian worldview as they encounter differing cultural values and beliefs, and learn to live intentionally as a global citizen. This training, along with a strong core of professional education courses and the experience of student teaching, will become the basis for an excellent teaching career in French.
