Elementary Education Master's Degree + Teacher Licensure
If you are seeking a career in education after obtaining a four-year liberal arts degree that did not include teacher licensure, you may complete requirements for teacher licensure in elementary education or secondary education at the same time you are attaining your master of education degree in one of those areas.
Important Program Update for 2017-2018 Academic Year
Starting in Summer 2017, students in the Elementary Education can earn a master's degree with licensure in 13 months (32 credit hours). The newly-redesigned program builds from a base of research and experience in supporting teacher learning, and upholds Peabody's commitment to preparing candidates who possess both deep understanding of learner development and subject specific pedagogy, and the skills to enact these understandings in sound and socially just practice. The redesign also capitalizes on our multifaceted partnerships with urban schools and community organizations.
