Bachelor of Arts/Bachelor of Science in Education
Undergraduate initial license and Post-baccalaureate initial license
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 38-41 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:
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
