Latin, BA with Licensure Preparation (GPS)


If you are interested in teaching Latin on the K-12 level, Wright State offers a teacher licensure program that provides the necessary training and credentials for the State of Ohio. The Latin Licensure program is a partnership between the Department of Classical Languages and Cultures and the Department of Teacher Education. Students major in Latin and complete the necessary teacher education licensure courses simultaneously and graduate fully prepared for the job market.

As the Graduation Planning Strategy illustrates below, students may, with careful planning, complete the Latin Licensure program in four years.
