The Online Graduate Certificate Program in Core Practices in World Language Education engages practicing World Language teachers from across the United States in a rigorous, reflective professional cohort that supports them in improving their World Language teaching practice. Core practices have been defined as those practices that are essential to successful classroom teaching and student learning, and are possible for teachers to learn and enact in their classrooms. 

By participating in this online graduate certificate program, World Language teachers will not only improve their classroom practice, they will more effectively engage their students in learning activities across the three modes of communication, and thereby better help their students to develop proficiency in the world language. This graduate certificate program consists of 12 credit hours.
