In response to a recent change in state regulations that allow for an undergraduate major in education, as well as a statewide shortage of teachers, we will be offering four-year paths to teacher licensure beginning in Fall 2020. The four-year licensure pathways include a B.S.Ed. in Elementary Education with a major in education, and programs in secondary, PK12, or special education. All students who apply to the College of Education in the Fall of 2020 will be required to do the four-year programs as the five-year programs will no longer be offered.
Opportunities for graduates to complete an accelerated master’s degree while they are teaching full-time is in development and will be available for students entering the four-year programs.
