Teaching Certificate for German
Students of German can achieve a non-degree Teaching Certificate (initial T-4 teacher certification) by completing the M.A.T. program through Step 3 (because German does not include a graduate program component there is no M.A.T./Master of Arts in Teaching in German Education, but the full program – Step 4 – could be completed later at another institution).
For further details consult the appropriate information at the College of Education’s Department of Teaching and Learning website. (As a model, you might want to use Study Concentration 4 Spanish Education, toward the bottom of that page).
Note that certain education courses can be taken as electives while still enrolled in the B.A. program.
Knowledge of German is useful in communication, engineering, environmental technology, international trade, tourism, transportation, government, the Arts, the sciences, and many other fields. It is important for graduate study (reading knowledge of foreign languages is often required, and German comes in handy). For more extensive information on foreign-language careers go here.
