Teacher Certification for Non-Majors

Students not majoring in education and students who have completed a bachelor’s degree have options for teacher certification through the School of Education.

Undergraduates who are not majoring in education may build teacher certification into their programs of study as electives dependent upon the major. Options include:

  • Enrolling in the Education Minor
  • Enrolling in as many courses as possible and finishing the certification requirements as a post-baccalaureate or master’s degree student
  • Pursuing a double major with the second major being education
  • Pursuing the BS/MS option

Students who complete the requirements may qualify for state teacher certification at the elementary (grades PreK–4), middle (grades 4–8) and secondary (grades 7–12) levels.
