About the Program

The World/Foreign Languages Education specialization of the Secondary Education program is devoted to providing students with a combination of fluency in the target language and the ability to implement best practices in foreign language pedagogy. The World/Foreign Languages Education specialization emphasizes that learning a foreign language also means learning about another way of life and developing intercultural understanding in order to escape a narrow cultural perspective. Through the experiences in this program, students gain a deeper understanding of the nature of language and culture.

Although most graduates work in secondary school settings, the need for foreign language teachers in elementary schools, especially for teachers of Spanish, is increasing. In response to this, the World/Foreign Languages Education specialization offers K-12 certification, and the curriculum is designed to equip students with knowledge and skills they can apply in K-12 settings. Certification is offered in French, German, Italian, Latin, and Spanish.

The Secondary Education graduate program with a concentration in World/Foreign Languages Education may be completed for certification only or certification plus a master's degree. All applicants are initially admitted to the master's program. After successfully completing the minimum requirements for certification, students may choose to leave the program with certification-only or may elect to continue in the program and complete the additional credit hours and requirements to receive certification and a master’s degree. The program requires a minimum of 28 credits for certification-only and 31 credits for certification plus a master's degree.

EDUC 8102. Ethnographic Research Methods. 3 Credit Hours.

This class will use an in-depth study of ethnographic methods to develop qualitative data collection skills. Ethnography is one type of qualitative research. It uses the study of people in their natural settings to attempt to understand their social world, culture, and the meanings they make of their experiences in social contexts. According to LeCompte and Schensul, "ethnography takes the position that human behavior and the ways in which people construct and make meaning of their worlds and their lives are highly variable and locally specific...[Thus,] ethnographic researchers learn through systematic observation in the 'field,' by interviewing and carefully recording what they see, hear, and observe people doing, while also learning the meanings that people attribute to what they do and the things they make" (LeCompte and Schensul, pp. 1-2). Because ethnographic research is intensive and involves a variety of data collection techniques - observations, interviews, and document analysis - learning ethnography is a good way to explore all of these techniques.

EDUC 8401. Philosophical Foundations of Educational Research. 3 Credit Hours.

This course asks students to grapple with a questions that will be foundational to their development as scholars in the field of education. At the most basic level, the course asks, "Why do we conduct research in education?" To help students answer these questions, the course surveys the broad variety of philosophical and scholarly traditions underlying educational research. Each of these traditions makes fundamental assumptions about the nature of knowledge and knowing, the role of education in society and human life, and the purposes and consequences of educational research. Throughout the course, students will explore these fundamental assumptions and determine their connection to various research agendas in education. In addition, students will grapple with their own reasons for conducting educational research, the impact they hope to have, and the connections between these and the College's commitment to equity and social justice. We will give special consideration to the philosophical assumptions inherent within various disciplines and debate the merits of each for conducting well-designed investigations that have the potential to improve the lives of others.

EDUC 8404. Quantitative Analysis, Part I. 3 Credit Hours.

Student attitudes toward statistics run the gamut from extreme interest to apathy to dread. You will learn in this course that it is possible to improve your thinking and make better decisions when you are facile in some fundamental statistical concepts and skills. When you "mathematize" your professional and personal world, you can reduce uncertainty, make better predictions, and understand the difference between (a) real and illusory differences among people and (b) real and illusory correlations (e.g., gender and depression; gender and risk-taking). This is true regardless of whether you are training to be a researcher, training to be a counselor, and learning stats for a variety of other fields. All methods for improving the lives of children and adults rely on research; major organizations (e.g., AERA, APA, ACA, AMA, etc.) emphasize evidence-based decision-making or choosing techniques that have been shown to be effective. Understanding statistics is a key component of evidence-based decision-making. One reason people hate or fear statistics is that their prior mathematics instructors were so bad that they became turned off to any kind of math or even doubted their math ability. Another reason is that some stats professors think that the mathematical (computational) aspect of stats is the only and most important thing rather than viewing computations as a means to an end, and aid in making decisions or drawing conclusions.
