This major is designed to prepare students to teach in public schools. To graduate with this major, students are required to complete Utah State Office of Education licensing requirements. To view these requirements go to or contact Education Student Services, 350 MCKB, 801-422-3426.

Licensure: This program meets the educational requirements designed to lead to an occupationally required professional license or certificate in the state of Utah. Students pursuing occupations requiring a license or certificate in a state other than Utah should contact the appropriate BYU academic advisement center as well as the licensing agency in the state where they intend to work to seek information and guidance regarding licensure and certification requirements.

Students may declare a French Teaching pre-major by contacting the Liberal Arts Advisement Center (JFSB 1041) at 801-422-3541. The first course will be FLANG 276: Exploration of Teaching Foreign Languages (offered on the first block during Fall and Winter semesters), at the end of which students apply for the French Teaching major through Educator Plus (application procedures are explained during FLANG 276).

Grades below C in any required coursework in a teaching major or teaching minor will not be accepted. Teacher candidates must maintain a cumulative GPA of 2.7 or higher once admitted into the program and to qualify for student teaching. For additional details on admission and retention requirements for teaching majors and teaching minors, see Educator Preparation Program Requirements at

A teaching minor in another subject is strongly recommended. Teaching opportunities in public schools may be significantly reduced without a second teaching subject that a teaching minor provides. See
