Prospective students should consult the undergraduate German Advisor and the Languages Other Than English (LOTE) Credential Program Advisor early to plan their program.

In addition to meeting the subject matter competence requirement for the Teaching Credential, prospective teachers of German are also required to complete 45 units of professional preparation in the Single Subject Credential Program, including student teaching.
