Teacher Education Program Guidelines/Requirements

Program guidelines are listed below, and they change from year to year. Current students should view the guidelines for the year that they declared teaching as a major. If you are unsure of the year to use, check with your academic advisor.

If you already have a bachelor’s degree and want to become a teacher, view the requirements for the current year. You may also be interested in coursework for licensure or our Transition to Teaching program.
