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 college and universities.

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