Michigan Standard Teaching Certificate (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 coursework 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.

    3. Special Education (Cognitive Impairment): Elementary Education and Cognitive Impairment Tests.
  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 (required for state certification).

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.

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, music, health and physical education, and foreign language education (Arabic, French, and Spanish), cover all grades, kindergarten through twelve.

Teaching Certification Requirements

All secondary certificates require an academic major in a subject areas such as English, mathematics, science, or social studies, approved for teaching in grades six through twelve by the State Board of Education. A minor is recommended. 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, etcetera. 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 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.
