Lead Program (Licensure in Education for Adults With Degrees)

A student who has received a Bachelor’s Degree (either a B.A. or B.S.) may add a teaching license to his/her credentials. While individual programs vary by subject area, most post-baccalaureate students are able to complete licensure preparation courses in four to five semesters by attending classes full-time. The Director of Graduate Education Studies will assist students with course selection and scheduling for the specific individual licensure programs offered at Walsh University. For further information, contact the Director of Graduate Education Studies and/or refer to the Graduate Catalog.

The following reading endorsements can be added to any license. See advisor for details.
