This program will lead to an Ohio Teaching license for grades K-12 in a world language. The MA graduate licensure program offers multiple courses in which candidates learn to teach subject-specific K-12 content while earning a Master of Education degree and eligibility for licensure. The program also integrates coursework with extensive school internship hours, culminating in an academic year long field experience and full-time student teaching. Applicants to the graduate program must have a bachelor’s degree, meet content requirements, pass state required content area licensure examinations, and meet all admission requirements.
Upon successfully completing the licensure portion of the program and passing licensure exams, candidates are eligible for an Ohio Multi-Age Resident Educator License. Licensure and certification requirements vary from state to state, and we have not determined if this program meets educational requirements outside of Ohio. If you are planning to pursue professional licensure or certification in a state other than Ohio, please contact the appropriate licensing entity in that state to seek information and guidance regarding that state’s licensure or certification requirements.
