For Initial Teacher Licensure Candidates Licensure to Master’s Specializations

Created to meet the growing need for qualified, dedicated teachers, the Licensure to Master’s specializations are designed for those who wish to teach at the PK-12 level. Candidates may seek initial licensure in one of the following areas:

General education:
  • early childhood/middle childhood education
  • middle childhood/early adolescence education
  • early adolescence/adolescence education
Cross-categorical special education:

They complete another 9 credits for the master’s degree. Each of these programs includes a semester of student teaching. The individual who seeks initial early adolescence/ adolescence licensure must have an undergraduate major that meets the requirements for licensure in English language arts, mathematics, science, or social studies. Additional coursework may be required.
