Unique Requirement: Core License

Those pursuing the ESL license must take language study to the 251 level or above or the equivalent in language experience to be determined in consultation with the program coordinator.

ESL Additional Recommendations

It is beyond the scope of this 24-credit academic minor to make someone a balanced bilingual with native-like cultural competence. However, it is possible for candidates to improve cultural and linguistic knowledge and competence by pursuing advanced language and culture study at UW-Whitewater, within general education course work, and elsewhere beyond the unique requirements specified above. Indeed, this competence is essential in achieving the performance levels specified by DPI, necessary to secure the ESL/BE license. To this end, students will be advised to include the courses listed below in their general education program as well as coursework in foreign languages, travel study, and study abroad.
