The Multi-Age program leads to a Master's of Education degree and licensure to teach French, German, Latin or Spanish. The graduate program is designed for three semesters of full-time study and internship requiring a Monday through Friday commitment.
Applicants must have a Bachelor's degree in the target language, meet content requirements, and pass state mandated examinations. World Language candidates are required to obtain the minimum score of “Intermediate High“ (or higher) on both the Oral Proficiency Interview (OPI) and the Writing Proficiency Test (WPT). Upon successful completion of the program and passing licensure exams, and the OPI and WPT exams, candidates are eligible apply for an Ohio Resident Educator Multi-Age license in the concentration area that applies to the candidate's preparation.
At this time, there is no state required exam for Latin, therefore, we will require candidates to take the Praxis II Exam in Latin, test code 5601, with a target qualifying score of 150. In addition, an oral interview will be required with a program faculty person.
Graduates of Wright State's Bachelor of Arts - French, German, Latin or Spanish in the College of Liberal Arts, may seek admission to the Master of Education (M. Ed.) degree in the College of Education and Human Services. This graduate program is required for teacher licensure.
Prerequisite undergraduate courses in Education and co-requisite school placements are required prior to admission to the graduate program. These courses are not required in the BA degree by the College of Liberal Arts. If you did not take these as electives, you will need to complete them prior to entry into the graduate program.
