Education - Non-Licensure Track
The Renaissance Program in Education
The Bachelor of Arts in Education, Non-Licensure track is designed to meet the needs of students desiring a bachelor's degree that prepares one for the pursuit of further higher education. Whether in the field of education or an allied interest area, the student is able to gain knowledge and develop skills that promote critical thinking and decision making while studying the foundations of education and instructional methodology applicable across professions.
The Non-Licensure track provides an alternative for students wishing to pursue a career in teaching who are not able to complete the clinical components for teaching licensure at the time the degree is being sought. The reverse option, to transfer from this program to a licensure track, is also available (additional coursework may be necessary if transfer occurs late in program).
Students seeking this degree complete a 120-credit-hour innovative program that includes four components:
- The pre-education core, consisting of 49 credit hours
- The professional education core, consisting of 42 credit hours
- The professional application unit of study/cognate, consisting of 17 credit hours, where students explore areas of interest related to the education core
- General electives, consisting of 12 credit hours, where students can explore related areas of interest choosing from many programs offered within the School for Professional Studies
