Technology Expectations

The College of Education expects that each initial teacher certification candidate will own or have ready access to a computer (desktop, laptop, and/or mobile device). Throughout their academic program, teacher certification candidates will use a variety of technologies to develop their portfolios, to create multi-media projects to demonstrate knowledge, to create audio and video files, to communicate globally, and to participate in group projects using collaborative tools. Most importantly, however, by using a variety of technologies to progress successfully through their own academic programs, prospective teachers learn how to appropriately use technology as a tool to support teaching and learning, skills that are critical to effective teaching in 21st century classrooms. At graduation, teacher candidates are expected to have technology skills that will facilitate and inspire student learning and creativity, enable development of digital age learning experiences and assessments, promote digital citizenship and responsibility, and use digital tools and resources to engage in professional growth and leadership. A teacher who possesses such innovative technology knowledge and skills for classroom application is an attractive employment candidate to any school district.

Michigan Provisional Certification (Education) - Bachelor’s Degree Requirements

Candidates for the Bachelor of Arts or Bachelor of Science degree in Education must complete at least 120 credits in course work with a minimum grade point average of 2.5. No grade below a ‘C’ may be used to meet requirements specific to elementary or secondary education, the major, the minor (including the planned program/comprehensive major), or professional education courses; a grade of ‘C-minus’ is not acceptable.

The following outline presents the general distribution of credits to be fulfilled by the student’s choice of curricula from the subsequent program descriptions, below. NOTE: Some programs require more than 120 credits; note also the addendum cited below for the Bachelor of Arts degree.

  1. Forty credits in pre-professional coursework including 6-8 credits in English to fulfill Basic and Intermediate Composition requirements and courses specified by individual program areas.
  2. Completion of the appropriate professional education sequence.
  3. Completion of teaching majors and teaching minors appropriate to the student’s intended level of certification.
  4. Three credits in personal health, first aid, health of the school child, or comprehensive school health education.
  5. Completion of University General Education Requirements (see General Education Program).
  6. Michigan Test for Teacher Certification:
    1. Elementary Education: Elementary Education Test. Examination in additional major/minor subject area(s) is also highly recommended.
    2. Special Education (Cognitive Impairment): Elementary Education and Cognitive Impairment Tests.
    3. Secondary Education: Tests in major and minor subject areas.
  7. Current certification in First Aid and Adult and Child CPR as verified by the Certification Office from a provider approved by the Michigan Department of Education.

BACHELOR OF ARTS in EDUCATION Language Requirement: In addition to the above requirements, the Bachelor of Arts degree requires completion of a foreign language through the intermediate level.

Career and Technical Education

Career and Technical education programs are offered in the following curricular areas:

  • Business, Management, Marketing and Technology – Comprehensive: Teaching Major (a minor is not required)
  • Business, Management, Marketing and Technology – Group: Teaching Major (minor required)
  • Marketing Education: Teaching Major (minor required)
  • Trade and Industry: Teaching Major (second academic major required); including Health Occupations (second academic major required)

These specializations are offered as majors in many community colleges and this major should be completed prior to admission to the College of Education. For further information, consult a career and technical education program coordinator in the College of Education.

All of the programs offered under these generic headings lead to two kinds of certification: secondary school certification, and vocational certification with required work experience.

All students in career and technical education must complete an academic major or minor as listed above, a vocational endorsement, the baccalaureate degree, and have two years (4,000 hours) of recent and relevant work experience (within the past five years) in an occupation related to the vocational endorsement.

Admission Requirements: In addition to the regular admission procedures (see Admission: Level 2), each applicant must have a personal interview with a career and technical education advisor and complete a Plan of Work.

CREDIT BY EXAMINATION: Credit in some occupational areas may be earned through competency examinations. Consult the CTE Program Coordinator for further information.

Teaching Certificates (Michigan)

The Michigan Department of Education issues two basic teaching certificates: elementary and secondary. The elementary certificate authorizes an individual to teach all subjects in grades kindergarten through five, major and minor subject areas in grades six through eight, and all subjects in grades K-8 in a self-contained classroom. The secondary certificate authorizes an individual to teach his/her major and minor subject areas in grades six through twelve. Some majors such as art, kinesiology, and music cover all grades, kindergarten through twelve.

Teaching Certification Requirements

Most secondary certificates require an academic major and an academic minor in subject areas such as English, mathematics, science, or social studies, approved for teaching in grades six through twelve by the State Board of Education. An elementary certificate requires a minimum of one academic major or a student-centered minor or major and the Planned Program/Comprehensive Major.

Students are recommended for certification after earning a bachelor’s degree from a regionally-accredited institution and completing a specified sequence of professional courses in the College of Education. Holders of a bachelor’s degree may also earn a teaching certificate in a post-bachelor certification program or Master of Arts in Teaching program. Additional information about these programs can be obtained from the Office of Academic Services in room 489 Education.

Certification for Post-Baccalaureate Students

A college graduate holding the bachelor’s or master’s degree may qualify for a teaching certificate by completing a Master of Arts in Teaching degree program, or by completing a recognized post-degree program. See the Wayne State University Graduate Bulletin for general requirements for the Master of Arts in Teaching degree. The student may need to supplement previous degree work in order to satisfy major and minor provisions of the Michigan certification code.

Teaching Certificate Endorsements

Teaching endorsements may be added to any certificate. An individual may add endorsements by completing requirements for academic majors and/or minors in accordance with State regulations. An individual holding an elementary certificate may also earn an endorsement to teach at the secondary level, and vice versa. When adding an additional endorsement, the individual must also pass the Michigan Test for Teacher Certification in that subject area.

Holders of certificates may add an additional endorsement in a content area or in a specialty area. Content areas include English, Language Arts, Mathematics, Science, Social Studies, etc... Content endorsements are generally completed with undergraduate coursework in a post-bachelor status. Specialty areas are endorsements seen as more pedagogical or based upon a specific setting in which a subject is taught. A few examples of specialty endorsements are Special Education, Early Childhood Education, English as a Second Language and Bilingual-Bicultural Education. Many of the specialty endorsements are completed as part of a graduate program and may include only graduate coursework.

For more information regarding adding an endorsement, consult an advisor in the Division of Academic Services, 489 Education Building.

Application for an endorsement must be made within five years after endorsement requirements have been met. State examinations must be passed for all new endorsements.
