The Graduate Certificate in Teaching and Learning is offered through the Curriculum and Instruction  graduate program.  The certificate provides graduate-level professional course work in education leading to teacher licensure to address critical statewide and national shortages in the following subjects:

  • Agriculture (Grades 6-12)
  • Art (Grades PK-12)
  • Biology (Grades 6-12)
  • Business (Grades 6-12)
  • Chemistry (Grades 6-12)
  • Earth and Space Sciences (Grades 6-12)
  • English (Grades 6-12)
  • Family and Consumer Sciences (Grades 6-12)
  • Journalism (Grades 6-12)
  • Mathematics (Grades 6-12)
  • Modern Language (Grades PK-12)
  • Music (Grades PK-12)
  • Physical Education and Health (PK-12)
  • Physics (Grades 6-12)
  • Speech and Theatre (Grades 6-12)
  • Social Studies (Grades 6-12)

This certificate program was designed to attract qualified candidates to the profession of teaching. Candidates must have a baccalaureate degree in the subject field where licensure is sought.

This program is a 19-20 credit hour curriculum that consists of three carefully articulated “blocks” of course work. While it is not required that the courses within either Block I or Block II be completed concurrently, it is a general expectation that the course work listed for Block I be completed before Block II. All courses in Blocks I and II must, however, be completed before enrolling in the Block III Internship semester. Questions concerning exceptions (or substitutions) should be directed to the Licensure Officer, Di Murphy, dim@k-state.edu.

Students seeking this certificate must submit a Graduate School application indicating the field of study will be the Teaching and Learning graduate certificate program. This is a separate application from the one for admission into a master’s degree. In addition to the Graduate School application, applicants need to submit the following:

  • An official transcript for the bachelor’s degree and for any subsequent undergraduate and graduate coursework.
  • A statement of objectives explaining the goals and purposes for seeking this graduate certificate.
  • Three letters of recommendation.

Block III (4 credit hours)
