Return to {$returnto_text} Return to: Degrees and Programs

Admission requirements for post-baccalaureate candidates seeking K-12 licensure include evidence of having a conferred bachelor’s degree in the licensure subject area, and meeting the criteria for formal admission. Upon application to the Teacher Education Program, an official transcript from the accredited colleges where the candidate attended, including the one granting the baccalaureate degree, must be brought to the Teacher Application Center (West Classroom 136). The appropriate content area advisors will review the transcript for completed course work appropriate for the endorsement being sought. It may be necessary for a Post-Baccalaureate candidate to complete specified courses in the content area, in addition to the professional licensure sequence course work, as part of their approved teacher preparation program. Post-baccalaureate students should begin the licensure program by taking the first education courses in their licensure sequence and should take the licensure content examination as soon as possible.

Coursework in teacher licensure is available through the Art Department. An existing BFA in a studio area is required. Students may need to take additional content area coursework to meet licensure requirements. Licensure students must take MTH 1610 Integrated Mathematics I and must meet all requirements for post-baccalaureate candidates. Students must also achieve satisfactory scores on the state licensure examination. See your advisor for more information. Students seeking teacher licensure should read the teacher licensure section of this Catalog, and they should stay in regular contact with their advisors.
