Teacher licensure in North Carolina and qualification for licensure in most of the other states may be earned at four UNCG professional schools and various departments within the College of Arts and Sciences. Students may select licensure programs in a variety of subject areas.
The School of Education offers programs in Elementary Education, Middle Grades Education, Professions in Deafness, and Special Education; and jointly directs, with departments in the College of Arts and Sciences, programs for teacher licensure in core academic subjects at the secondary level.
The School of Health and Human Sciences, the School of Music, Theatre, and Dance, and the College of Arts and Sciences, in collaboration with the School of Education, offer teacher education curricula.
Graduates of approved teacher education curricula are eligible for initial licensure on the basis of UNCG’s recommendation to the State Department of Public Instruction. As requirements may vary among departments, students should check with their major advisor for specific information regarding their program.
Important information for all education students at UNCG can be found in the Teacher Education Handbook.
