The division of Education provides pathways to initial certification at the masters level (Masters in the Art of Teaching, M.A.T.) and additional endorsements that can be added to an existing teaching license or initial certification (i.e., Bilingual/Bicultural, English as a Second Language, and Early Childhood General and Special Education). 

Teaching Certificates (M.A.T.)

Present-day education is characterized by specialization at the secondary and elementary levels, related to both subject-matter fields and the age of school children. The Michigan Certification Code provides for specialization in either the elementary, or secondary school areas by authorizing state certification for teaching on those levels. Thus, a person who has kindergarten through grade eight endorsement is not legally qualified to teach in the secondary schools above grade eight, and a person with grades six through twelve endorsement is not legally qualified to teach below grade six. An exception is made in certain fields such as art, physical education, and music education, where the holder of a provisional certificate is qualified to teach his/her major subject in all grades, and, if indicated by his/her certificate, other subjects in other grades.

The certification code recognizes subject-matter specialization by requiring that the candidate for a teacher's certificate present concentrations of credits called majors and minors. In general, the secondary school teacher must have a major and minor teaching field. The elementary school teacher must have one of the following options:

  1. a core subject major or two minors and the Elementary Planned Program or
  2. a student-centered program and the Elementary Comprehensive Major.

The Elementary Planned Program/Comprehensive Major is a series of courses designed to support the teaching of all subjects K-5: Health and Physical Education, Language-Arts, Mathematics, Science, Social Studies, Technology and the Arts. All majors and minors must be in subject-matter fields appropriate to teaching at the level for which certification is to be recommended. Individuals must pass state examinations in their major and minor fields before they begin student teaching.

Certification Requirements (M.A.T.)

Michigan State Teacher's Certificates are granted by the Michigan State Board of Education upon the recommendation of the College of Education. The Standard Certificate is the initial certificate issued for a five-year period. Renewal of the Standard Certificate adds five years to the certificate's validity and renewals are unlimited. Teachers may advance to a five-year Professional Certificate after completing additional requirements. As with the Standard Certificate, the Professional Certificate has unlimited renewals. Contact a College of Education advisor for additional information. Certificates will indicate in which grades and subjects the holder is eligible to teach. In certain specified nonacademic fields, however, the holder of a teaching certificate is eligible to teach his/her major subject in all grades from the kindergarten through the twelfth. The qualifications which the College requires for recommendation for the certificate are summarized below.

Standard Certificates (M.A.T.)

Teaching certificates as listed below are granted when all certification requirements have been met, which usually occurs upon the completion of the professional education sequence of the M.A.T. program.

Elementary Standard Certificate

(Kindergarten through Grade Five all subjects, Kindergarten through Grade Eight in a self-contained classroom, and Kindergarten through Eight in subjects corresponding to majors and minors)

Also, a Criminal Background check no more than six months old is required.

Secondary Standard Certificate

(Grades Six through Twelve)

  1. The candidate must have graduated with a bachelor's degree from an approved or accredited teacher education institution.
  2. In general, the academic background must include a single subject major or a group major in subjects in which the applicant expects to teach that are appropriate to the Secondary level. An additional minor is optional. 
  3. Completion of a professional education sequence is required.
