Foreign Language Education K-12 Certification

The graduate teacher certification program in Foreign Language Education K-12 is designed to build on the solid foundation of a student’s bachelor’s degree and competency in a foreign language.

With the guidance of our expert faculty, students will study methods of second language teaching, integration of technology in the classroom, theory and research in second language acquisition, and linguistics.

The graduate foreign language certification K-12 is a 30 credit program and includes Level 1 teacher’s certification preparation in one of the following languages:

  • French
  • German
  • Italian
  • Latin
  • Spanish

Saint Joseph’s Graduate Education unit also offers foreign language education as a master’s degree program and an Online English as a Second Language Specialist Certification preparation which may be added to this program.

Admission to this program is only offered to U.S. Citizens or Permanent Residents of the United States.

The demand for quality education professionals is on the rise. Building upon our existing expertise in this sector, Saint Joseph's University has created a School of Health Studies and Education, which will officially open in the Fall of 2019. Over 40 existing undergraduate, graduate, doctoral and certificate programs, including this one, will be housed in this school.
