GMU Initial Licensure with Master of Education in Curriculum and

Instruction Option

Introduction

The Foreign Language and Latin (PK-12) initial licensure program with an optional

master's degree component provides professionals with the specialized knowledge, skills,

and professional dispositions needed to meet the educational needs of students

attending today's schools. The program prepares prospective educators seeking

licensure as teachers of world languages (Chinese, French, German, Japanese,

Russian, Spanish, or Latin) in schools that serve preschool through grade twelve. 

Program Information

Advising Checklist
• Foreign Language Licensure Advising Worksheet [
Word] [PDF]

Licensure Component
The first 21 credits of course work and a 6-credit internship make up the licensure

component for individuals who are pursuing a full, initial license or who need to satisfy

the state's requirements of a provisional license.

Internship Options
A 6-credit, 15-week daytime internship is required for completion of the state-approved l

icensure program. Both an elementary and a middle school or secondary school

placement are required. Two options are available to meet the needs of most individuals:
  • Internship--One-term daytime internship in the classroom of a cooperating teacher.
    Intern assumes co-teaching and independent teaching responsibilities.
  • On-the-job Internship-This option is available only to students who are employed as
    full-time, provisionally licensed teachers and are teaching in their endorsement area in
    an accredited school. In addition to a fall or spring experience, this option includes a
    summer or some other appropriate experience. In lieu of an internship, provisionally
    licensed teachers may choose to use their full-time teaching to satisfy the experience
    requirements for a full license. However, the 42-credit master's degree requires that 6
    credits in approved course work be substituted for the internship.

Field Experience
Field experiences in public schools are required throughout the program: a maximum

of 15 clock hours per course or 30 clock hours per term. Arrangements will be made

 at the beginning of each term.

Completion of M.Ed. Degree
After completion of the licensure component, an additional 15 credits are required for

completion of the Master of Education (M.Ed.) in Curriculum and Instruction degree

and must be completed within six years of admission to the program.
