Instructors are required to have a master’s degree in the discipline they are teaching. If a teacher’s master’s degree is in another discipline, they must have at least 18 graduate credits in the discipline. Additionally, discipline-specific experience may be evaluated by UW-Green Bay faculty to determine if they qualify as an instructor.

For instructors applying to teach in modern languages who have a master’s degree other than the language, they will be required to take the OPI Proficiency and Writing Proficiency assessments through Language Testing International and are required to score in the advanced range. UW-Green Bay will provide access to these assessments at no cost to the instructor or school district.


Potential instructors submit materials to the CCIHS Program Specialist by email for review and submission to the UW-Green Bay faculty department. The faculty will evaluate the potential instructor’s credential to determine their approval.


Currently there are two levels of approval:


Instructors have a master’s degree and adequate experience, but not a minimum of 18 graduate credits in the discipline. Provisionally approved instructors are approved to start teaching the class but must earn the minimum number of graduate credits by September 2025.
