          Students not holding teacher certification may obtain this master’s degree along with teacher certification in a wide variety of areas. The purpose of this program is to help candidates develop pedagogy and professional skills that will enable them to gain classroom proficiency. The program is structured for students who are not certified to teach, and who wish to pursue an advanced degree and secure certification. 

          Students who are currently teaching math and/or science with an emergency certificate or have a bachelor's degree in math or the sciences may use this program to obtain a master’s degree and certification.

          Note: this option has on-campus requirements. Field experience and student teaching must be completed in area schools.

          Teacher certification areas and Plans of Study can be found here.
