The World Languages Education - Languages Other Than English (LOTE) minor is intended for non-World Languages Education - Languages Other Than English (LOTE) majors. It is well suited for College of Education and Human Performance students majoring in another secondary content area. It is also intended to provide for university students outside the College of Education and Human Performance (such as students enrolled in Interdisciplinary Studies, International and Global Studies, or programs in the Department of Modern Languages and Literatures) a limited but substantial experience in the field of professional education.This minor is not available to students in pending status in a College of Education and Human Performance major. Students who successfully complete this minor can expect to increase their marketability in careers that include educational components such as instructing, training, and lecturing. This minor is designed to promote student success in instructional settings, particularly in the K-12 school setting, but does not directly qualify students for teacher certification or admission into the College of Education and Human Performance.
