Teaching Certification in French and Italian

The University of Pittsburgh believes that you need to master your content area of Italian or French during undergraduate education before learning how to teach your subject to students. Then after graduating, you will enter the University of Pittsburgh's School of Education and immerse yourself in an intensive year of study while earning a degree that's focused on the art and science of teaching your subject. From the Master of Arts in Teaching (MAT) degree to Professional Year (PY) Certification and the dual certification MOSAIC program, we offer numerous degree and certificate programs to help you achieve your goals to teach and lead. Please take a look at the School of Education foreign language education page for more information.  

Prior to applying, be sure to: 

  • Learn more about the School of Education admissions process and contact the admissions staff to confirm whether your undergraduate courses align with the prerequisites required for entry into the graduate program. 
  • Look into the teacher education minor, as the courses included provide the opportunity to make progress toward the required prerequisites for the secondary teacher certification programs. 
  • Attend a teacher education information session to get more details.

As you prepare for an application to the School of Education, it is also important to keep in mind that employment opportunities can vary by region and across languages of instruction.  For more information, or if you have any questions, please email SOE Admissions or contact them at 412-648-2230.
