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. 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 BF A in a studio area is required. Students interested in the post-bac program that have a BA in a studio area will be required to submit a portfolio for review for entrance into the program. Students that are not accepted to the licensure program after the portfolio review can reapply for review the following semester. Students provisionally accepted may need to complete additional content area coursework to meet licensure requirements. Students must also achieve satisfactory scores on the state licensure examination. See your advisor for more information.
