Undergraduate Teacher Certification Options

Elementary (grades K-8)

An intensive, sequenced, four-term bachelor’s degree program that prepares students for teacher certification in grades K-8 in self-contained, multi-subject classrooms or grades 6-8 in subject specific classrooms.  Students typically begin the program during their junior year, after demonstrating strong academic preparation in general studies as well as their teaching major and minor.

Secondary (grades 6-12)

An intensive, sequenced, three-term bachelor’s degree program that prepares students for teacher certification in grades 6-12 in their teaching major and/or minor. Students typically begin the program during their junior year, after demonstrating strong academic preparation.  Students may opt to transfer into the School of Education for their degree and certification or may remain in their home unit (LSA, for example) for their degree while obtaining certification through the School of Education.

Post-Baccalaureate Teaching Certification

For those who have already earned a bachelor's degree, the post-baccalaureate option provides you with an opportunity to pursue elementary or secondary teacher certification.
