Chinese Minor - Teaching Emphasis without Secondary School Licensure


(Minor 19 credits)


(2.5 GPA required in major or minor classes)

     It is possible to have a teaching emphasis within a minor in Chinese without receiving Secondary School teaching licensure.  However, unless the student is an elementary education major, he or she would not be able to teach in Utah public schools (nor at many private ones).  Graduating without licensure may allow employment at community colleges and universities.

     In order to complete a Chinese Minor - Teaching Emphasis without Secondary School Licensure, students must fulfill all of the requirements listed under Section I (Chinese and Linguistics Courses) of the Chinese Minor - Teaching Emphasis with Secondary School Licensure (16 credits), plus LING 44002, for a total of 19 credits.  (LING 3300 for the teaching minor is no longer required if doing non-licensure Chinese Teaching minor program).
