The interdisciplinary minor in foreign language teacher preparation provides initial training for Classical and Modern Language students who want to explore teaching languages but do not plan to seek K-12 teacher certification. Students in this program learn how languages work and how people learn while developing advanced written and oral skills in their language of choice. Take part in experiential learning opportunities related to language and culture ranging from service-learning projects and study abroad to internships and more. 

If you want to turn this interdisciplinary studies minor into a major, consider Truman’s interdisciplinary studies major.
