Bachelor of Arts/Bachelor of Science in Education

Undergraduate initial license and Post-baccalaureate initial license

Link to: Courses | Advising | Apply | Cost | Faculty & Staff

The undergraduate program leads to a bachelor's degree. The post-baccalaureate program is for those who already hold a bachelor's degree but want to earn the first (initial) teaching license. The 38-43 credit hour undergraduate/post-baccalaureate program is a full-time format, taking three terms to complete.

 

We offer undergraduate and post-baccalaureate initial licensure with authorization available in the following levels:

  • Early Childhood - age 3 through grade 4
  • Early Childhood/Elementary - age 3 through grade 8
  • Elementary/Middle - grades 3 through 9
  • Middle/High School - grades 5 through 12
  • High School - grades 9 through 12

The program meets both on campus and in public schools for your student teaching experience. Summer session is not utilized for these courses. During the first two terms, candidates may take an additional course outside of the professional program. During the final two terms, the rigorous professional program requires full time involvement in teacher education.

 

You can start the program during either fall or spring terms. Applications are due two terms prior to the starting term and careful planning, test completion and documented experiences are required in preparation to meet the application deadline. Please come by the Education Office (ED 202) and pick up an application packet as soon as possible.

 

Note: If you already hold a bachelor's degree and want
1.) to teach at the high school level
2.) an initial teaching license
3.) a master's degree
please see the WOU Master of Arts in Teaching (MAT).
