The Licensure Only pathway to teaching is for students who have a degree from a regionally accredited university and want to complete coursework before they obtain a teaching job. There is a two semester Internship I and II requirement that must be completed in one of our Latham Clinical Schools Network districts. Licensure Only programs will vary by content area. The length will depend on your background in the content area and how many courses you are willing to take each semester. Students must take classes each semester in order to maintain eligibility to register. Should you skip a semester, you will be required to be re-admitted to the university. Many students who select this option may choose to search for available teaching jobs. If obtaining employment as a teacher, our Alternative Licensure Office will work to revise the plan of study to one of our Lateral Entry Options.
