Secondary Teacher Education Program (STEP)-Languages, Philosophy, and Communication Studies


31 credits

Most of the courses listed below count for both the teaching emphasis and the teaching minor.

C. Level 3


Because student teaching requires a major commitment of time and energy, students should take only the course listed below during this semester. Students are also urged to forgo outside employment, if possible, during the student teaching experience. 

Note:


1 The Special Methods II course is taught under course number 4400.

2 LING 3300  and LING 4400  must be taken during the same semester, and should be the last courses taken for the major or minor. These courses should be taken the Fall semester before student teaching. 

French Major and/or Minor—Teaching Emphasis without Secondary School Licensure (major 35 credits, minor 20 credits) (2.5 GPA)


It is possible to have a teaching emphasis within a major or minor in French 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 some community colleges and universities.

In order to complete the French Major—Teaching Emphasis without Secondary School Licensure, students must fulfill all of the requirements listed under Section I (French and Linguistics Courses) of the French Major—Teaching Emphasis with Secondary School Licensure (31 credits), plus LING 4300  and LING 4400 , for a total of 35 credits.

Similarly, to complete a French Minor—Teaching Emphasis without Secondary School Licensure, students must fulfill all of the requirements listed under Section I (French and Linguistics Courses) of the French Minor—Teaching Emphasis with Secondary School Licensure (16 credits), plus LING 3300  and LING 4400 , for a total of 20 credits.
