Teaching Licensure

Students preparing to teach in public schools should refer to the College of Arts & Sciences Education section. In addition to the requirements of a College of Arts & Sciences major, students must meet requirements for teacher licensure. To be considered for admission to the student teaching practicum as a part of the teacher licensure sequence, students must achieve a minimum grade point average (GPA) of 2.5. Contact Director of Student Services Stephanie Gonzalez in Room 243 at the School of Education (2 Silber Way) for an appointment to discuss options and to receive an application. Application should be made no later than the beginning of the second semester of the sophomore year.
