Foreign Language TEAching Certification Program

The department is very proud of its foreign language teacher development program. Connecticut state certification is rigorous, but is rewarded with salaries higher than national averages and recognition in most U.S. states. Language teachers at schools throughout Connecticut have received their initial teacher training at SCSU, and its graduates are eagerly sought by schools throughout the state. We certify teachers in French, German, Italian, and Spanish at the elementary and secondary levels.

There are several routes to certification:


Dr. Christine Rapp Dombrowski (FL Certification Coordinator) - 203-392-7127
Ken Bungert (School of Education) - (203) 392-6295
