Teaching Endorsement

World Languages Teaching Endorsement Advisor: Sheryl Bernardo-Hinesley

Western Washington University offers teacher certification in Secondary Education (Chinese, French, German, Japanese, and Spanish) and Elementary Education (French, German, and Spanish) with a world language endorsement. 

The Department of Modern and Classical Languages provides instruction in history and culture, as well as literary theory, with an end to enabling the student to gain access to the intellectual life in the culture. The department imparts skills to future world language teachers so that they may similarly enable high school and elementary school students to begin the acquisition of world languages.
