The Adolescent to Young Adult Education program (Grades 7-12) leads to the Master of Education degree and licensure to teach a single subject (English/Language Arts, Mathematics, Social Studies, Science). The program is designed for three semesters of full-time study and internship, requiring a Monday through Friday commitment. Applicants must have a bachelor’s degree, meet content requirements, and pass content area licensure examinations. Upon successful completion of the licensure portion of the program and passing licensure exams, candidates are eligible for a provisional Adolescent to Young Adult Education license in the specific content area.
