Teacher Certification for Non-Majors

The School of Education offers several teacher certification options for current undergraduates enrolled in non-education majors as well as those that have already completed their bachelor’s degree.

Non–education undergraduate majors may build teacher certification into their program of study as electives dependent upon the major.  Those who cannot manage the whole certification may opt to engage in the Education Minor and/or enroll in as many courses that will fit into their undergraduate degree and then finish the teacher certification requirements as a post-baccalaureate or master’s degree student. Students may also choose to double major with second major in Education or pursue the B.S./M.S. option.

Student may qualify for state teacher certification in Elementary (grades Pre K–4), Middle Level (grades 4-8) and Secondary Education (grades 7-12).
