Students in teacher education must pass the test administered by the State of Michigan. They must also pass an Oral Proficiency Interview. A rating of Advanced-Low on the ACTFL Proficiency Scale constitutes the minimum required level of proficiency. For details and information on cost and scheduling see the chairperson. Additional criteria for approval for the teacher education program are found in the Teacher Education Program Guidebook, available in the Education Department.
Note: German education minors are strongly encouraged to participate in an abroad experience in a German-speaking country. A semester abroad program, the German Interim Abroad or a summer work or internship program can meet this requirement.
