Teacher Certification Programs

Students who have received a degree from an accredited college or university may pursue a program of courses that leads to initial teacher certification. Individuals interested in becoming certified to teach in the public schools may do so as a student-at-large or as a degree-seeking student. Many students who start out pursuing an initial teaching license quickly decide to seek admission to a degree-awarding program simultaneously.
