French Teacher Certification

Students pursuing a major in French with teaching certification (39 semester hours) should review the Teacher Education Program in the College of Education.

In addition to fulfilling 36 hours in the French major curriculum, students seeking P-12 teaching certification must complete FRE 350: Methods of Teaching French and all required teacher education and general education courses. 

Students entering NKU under the 2010-2011 catalog or later must include either FRE 401: French Phonetics and Pronunciation or FRE 402: Advanced French Grammar and Syntax as part of their major curriculum. 

Upon deciding to pursue the teacher education program, students must schedule an appointment with the coordinator of certification and advisement in the College of Education and with the certification advisor in French.

They must also fulfill all department requirements involving the portfolio and other required assessments, as specified in the Major's Handbook for Department of World Languages and Literatures.
