Additional course work may be required to ensure the student has an approved teachable major and minor selected by the student to teach in the high school setting. Interested candidates must schedule an appointment with a certification advisor in the College of Education to review course work and state testing requirements for the endorsement and discuss how this program will develop into the Master of Arts in Teaching degree.
