The Teacher’s Certificate Program (TCP) is designed to meet the needs of future teachers of secondary school French. This program leads to a Bachelor of Arts degree.
Completion of the French TCP major and a TCP minor in another area is required. Note: the Michigan Department of Education does not allow a course to be counted toward the credit requirements of both a major and a minor.
Professional requirements are to be completed in three phases, in sequence, during which the student creates an Individual Major Portfolio. A minimum grade of C (2.0) is required in each course.
In addition, for progression from phase to phase and completion of the program, minimum GPAs of B- (2.7) or higher in the major, the minor, the professional coursework and overall, are required.
Students in this program are strongly encouraged to study in a French-speaking country. See faculty advisors for recommendations of foreign study programs.
