Academic Content Area For certification in one foreign language


Ten courses above the first two elementary courses must be taken (that is, beyond courses which, at Temple, are generally numbered 1001 and 1002)

All courses must be taught in the target language. (Native speakers who received most of their pre-university education in their native land may be eligible to certify by taking eight appropriate foreign language courses in their native language.)

These ten courses must include:

  • Composition and Conversation: at least two (and preferably three) courses are required, except for Italian, in which only one course is available.
  • Culture and Civilization: one course is required.
  • Linguistics: one course is required. If no course is available in the target language, one will have to be taken in another department, but it will not count as a foreign language course if taken in the English or Strategic Communication departments.
  • Literature: two courses are required, one of which must be contemporary literature. Students should check with an advisor to select the specific courses that meet the above requirements. Additional courses should also be selected in consultation with an advisor. It is strongly recommended that, in Spanish, courses be taken in both Peninsular and Latin American Spanish. Similarly, in French, coursework should include both continental and overseas French.

Total Semester Hours for Certification in One Foreign Language: 122-124

It is strongly recommended that certification in English as a Second Language (ESL or ESOL) or in an additional foreign language be pursued in order to enhance career opportunities. Courses may be taken during summer sessions to avoid heavy course loads during the academic year.

Total Semester Hours for Certification in One Foreign Language and ESL: 131-133

 

Academic Content Area For Certification in Two Foreign Languages

Ten courses in the first foreign language must be taken. If the language is begun at the college level, the first two elementary courses do not count toward the ten courses. At Temple, these courses are generally numbered 1001 and 1002.

For the second foreign language, at least eight courses must be taken. The first two beginning courses do count toward certification in the second foreign language. The same courses required for the first foreign language apply also to the second foreign language, (i.e., two courses in composition and conversation, one culture and civilization course, one linguistics course, and two literature courses, including contemporary literature).

Total Semester Hours for Certification in Two Foreign Languages: 146-148

 

Native Speakers

 

Native speakers who were educated to speak, read, and write their native language need only eight courses in the formal study of their native language as a subject at the university level. Courses should be at an appropriate level for their background. These courses must include two composition and conversation courses, one culture and civilization course, one linguistics course, and two literature courses (including a contemporary literature course). There is no credit-by-examination given at Temple in a foreign language.

 

Foreign Study and/or Travel

 

Study and travel experiences in relevant foreign language speaking areas are highly recommended. Temple provides such experiences at Temple's Rome Campus, the Temple-Sorbonne program, the Temple University of Puerto Rico exchange program, or Temple's exchange programs with the Universities of Hamburg and Tübingen in Germany. The Latin American Studies Semester program is an immersion experience available at Temple's Main Campus to all Spanish majors during spring semesters.   Students interested in Study Abroad should consult International Programs and College of Education advising well in advance of when they plan to go abroad.

Secondary Education / Science Education

 

Students seeking certification in Secondary Education Science should pursue TUteach, a joint program between the College of Science and Technology and the College of Education. The TUteach program is grounded in the "How People Learn" framework described in recent National Academy of Science publications and has a strong emphasis on project-based instruction (learning content by intensive exploration of a problem rather than by solely listening to lectures). The TUteach program prepares students to pursue the same career options as other science majors or to teach high school science.

 

All TUteach degrees lead to a "Bachelor of Science with Teaching" degree, all of which have been approved by the Pennsylvania Department of Education for secondary level teaching certification in the content area - grades 7 through 12.

 

Additional information about the TUteach program can be found at https://tuteach.cst.temple.edu/.
