The College of Education and Human Services offers a variety of teacher preparation programs for individuals who have earned bachelor's degrees and who have had little or no professional training in education. While these programs lead to licensure, most of the course work they require cannot be applied to a graduate degree. All post-baccalaureate students seeking teacher licensure must fully meet the college's admission requirements and professional standards as outlined in this catalog. Moreover, students must be available for fieldwork in area schools during the day and are urged to carefully plan their program of study since they must apply for practicum and student teaching placements one semester in advance of registration for these experiences.
An individual appointment with an adviser in the Education Student Services Center(Julka Hall 170A) is required prior to acceptance into any of the post-baccalaureate programs described below. During the appointment, the adviser will provide a personalized assessment of required course work. Upon program completion, students are also invited to make use of the university's Career Services Center for help in obtaining employment.
