Program Description

For the candidate with a Bachelor’s degrees who wishes to complete Multi-Age licensure requirements at the graduate level but does not wish to pursue a graduate degree. (This program does not lead to a Master’s degree). The MA graduate licensure program offers multiple courses in which candidates learn to teach subject-specific K-12. The program also integrates coursework with extensive school internship hours, culminating in an academic yearlong 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.
