What will I learn?

On campus living is currently optional, but quarantine seems to have made this year’s freshman class less ready for off campus living. We want to make sure that they have a support system in place, which they will have in the dorms.

Adventurous people are in demand to teach language education for students living in an increasingly global society. Becoming a teacher of modern languages requires either a bachelor’s degree in secondary education or a B.A. in modern languages with licensure. The Department of Anthropology, Sociology, and Languages offer course work in French, German, Japanese and Spanish leading to the B.A. in Modern Language degree. In cooperation with the College of Education, these courses may be used as a concentration field in each of these languages for students also seeking the B.S. degree in education. Several scholarships and opportunities for study abroad are available for students who qualify.

Teacher candidates are prepared to demonstrate competencies in 4 major Skills and Knowledge areas in the language of concentration: Linguistic, Critical Thinking, Cultural/Global Awareness, and Self- Reflection. Area schools and organizations such as the St. Louis Language Immersion School offer excellent opportunities for working with students while learning to teach.
