Japanese (K-12) with Secondary Education

Students may prepare for careers in teaching in the five-year secondary education teaching and certification program (STEP), elect an elementary teaching major in French, German, Japanese or Spanish, or elect a secondary or elementary teaching minor in Chinese, French, German, Japanese or Spanish.

The School of Education and Human Services (SEHS) and the College of Arts and Sciences (CAS) offer a fifth-year secondary teacher education program (STEP) leading to recommendation for Michigan secondary provisional teacher certification. This certification is valid for teaching content area majors and minors in grades 6-12, except for music, art, and modern language majors which are valid for grades K-12.
