About

The New York State Education Department licenses graduates of registered teacher education programs who meet the state requirements for teachers. All students should consult with the Department of Secondary Education for current requirements. 

This master of arts program provides students with an introduction to the French/Francophone literature. At the same time, the focus on language and culture fully prepares students for employment as foreign language teachers at the middle and high school levels. 

Coursework is divided between the Department of Modern Languages and Literatures (six courses) and the Department of Secondary Education. The courses required by the Department of Secondary Education vary depending on the entry qualifications of students. The profession of teacher education is licensed by the New York State Education Department. Therefore, program requirements are subject to change.
