French Teaching Licensure

Special Subject Area Teacher Licensure in French (K-12)

Majors or second majors seeking teacher licensure must meet competency in phonetics by successfully completing FRE 311 “Conversation and Phonetics.”  Students must choose literature courses that represent a broad range of periods, movements and/or genres.  They must also satisfy a civilization requirement by completing FRE 331, 332, 496, 532, or 557 (when the topic is “Paris”).  Admission to teacher education and student teaching in French requires a minimum grade point average of 2.75, both cumulative and in the major.  Please see additional teacher licensure requirements discussed under “Teacher Education and Licensure” in the Undergraduate Bulletin, and in the Teacher Education Handbook developed by the Collaborative for Educator Preparation at UNCG.
