What will I learn?

Education is a rewarding and challenging profession that is constantly changing. Teachers have the opportunity to educate and nurture young adults to be lifelong learners, leaders, and responsible citizens. Secondary education offers the unique chance for teachers to share their passion and expertise for a specific subject. High-quality teachers are in demand all across the country, and our teacher program is nationally recognized.

Our professors work with students to refine teaching skills and build confidence in pedagogy and content knowledge. We are extremely proud of our teacher education programs and of the graduates we produce to fill the classrooms in the public schools of Wyoming and the Rocky Mountain region, as well as schools across the country.

The goal of the modern language education program at UW is to produce modern language educators who are innovators and leaders in the field and who are also fluent speakers, readers, and writers of a modern language. All graduates earn a Bachelor's Degree in Modern Language Education AND a concurrent major in French, German, or Spanish. A concurrent major will ensure that graduates are "highly qualified" teachers and will expand career possibilities.

The program includes courses in pedagogy, assessment, and special education with authentic classroom experiences embedded throughout the program. Students will also take courses in French, German, or Spanish and will be required to pass the Oral Proficiency Interview (OPI) and Writing Proficiency Test (WPT) with a rating of advanced low or better. Students should not enroll in EDSE 4276 (Modern Language Methods II) until this rating has been achieved. Students in the program are strongly encouraged to study abroad to immerse themselves in the language and culture that they will one day be teaching.
