The Teacher Education Division offers a number of education specialist programs at the elementary and secondary levels. These certificate programs are designed to strengthen the educational background of teachers, administrators, and other education professionals.
These certificate programs require thirty credits beyond the master’s degree. The individual student’s professional needs and interests are taken into account in determining the specific content of his/her program. The typical plan includes course work in the specialized professional area and subject matter areas supportive of a major or minor. All course requirements for the various majors are selected in consultation with an advisor. All course work must be completed in accordance with the academic procedures of the College of Education and the Graduate School's regulations governing graduate scholarship and degrees.
