Frequently Asked

Questions

Yes, we have several online education degrees that lead to teacher licensure. Our licensure programs are robust and require field work in a school setting starting early with key coursework and continuing throughout. Our programs conclude with a clinical placement where student teaching is completed. 

We offer three degrees designed to prepare you to become an elementary school teacher. If you haven’t already earned a bachelor’s degree, we offer the Bachelor of Science/Elementary Teacher Education and Bachelor of Science in Liberal Studies (California students only). If you already have a bachelor’s degree in a field outside of education, you can enroll in our Master of Arts in Education/Elementary Teacher Education program.

In addition to our institutional accreditation, select education degree programs leading to licensure have specific state or programmatic accreditation.   See all accreditations.

 

A master’s degree may help prepare you for leadership opportunities in your school. Gain the skills to shape curriculum with our Master of Arts in Education/Curriculum and Instruction. Or prepare for principal licensure with our Master of Arts in Education/Administration and Supervision.

Our Doctor of Education prepares you to use analytical, critical, and innovative thinking to improve performance and solve complex problems in education (this program does not lead to any educational licensure or certification).

Requirements for teacher and Principal licensure vary by state. View your specific state’s teacher licensure requirements and principal licensure requirements
