How will you benefit from an additional license? You can enhance your competitiveness in the job market by earning licensure in more than one area. School districts seek to hire the most qualified teachers, and the more desirable candidates are those who can teach in more than one area as needed.
Programs are offered at the undergraduate level for candidates completing their initial degree and license. License addition programs vary in length and may be completed as part of your undergraduate work. You should discuss your goals with your advisor to determine how a license addition may be worked into your schedule.
License additions at the graduate level are available both for graduate students seeking initial licensure and for experienced teachers. If you want to teach in a different area or desire to expand your career opportunities, a license addition is a good way to accomplish your goal. Admission to the license addition programs at the graduate level is competitive, and each program determines its minimum GPA in the subject field. All course work must be completed with a "C" or higher. To find out what you need to do to pursue a license addition, talk to one of our academic advisors.
