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,

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)
