World Languages Education - Languages Other Than English (LOTE)

Graduate Certificate

Department: School of Teaching, Learning, and Leadership

The World Languages Education - Languages Other Than English (LOTE) graduate certificate builds knowledge and skills in teaching and assessing academic subjects and supporting second language acquisition and literacy for teaching languages other than English. The graduate certificate is well suited for students pursuing a graduate degree in a language other than English or for students with graduate standing who are proficient in a LOTE that they would like to teach. Students who successfully complete this graduate certificate can expect to increase their marketability in careers that include educational components such as instructing, training and lecturing. This graduate certificate is designed to promote student success in instructional settings, particularly in the PreK-12 school setting, but does not directly qualify students for teacher certification. Courses used to earn this certificate may not also be used to earn the World Languages Education - English for Speakers of Other Languages (ESOL) graduate certificate.
