Multi-Age Program of Study

The Multi-Age program leads to the Master of Education degree and licensure to teach French, German, Latin, Spanish, or Art. The program is designed for full-time study and internship, requiring a Monday through Friday commitment. Applicants must have a bachelor’s degree, meet content requirements and pass the state mandated examinations. Art candidates must present Ohio qualifying scores (or better) on licensure exams. World language candidates must score “Advanced Low” or better on both the OPI and WPT examinations (this is an accreditation standard). Upon successful completion of the licensure portion of the program and passing licensure exams, candidates are eligible for a provisional Multi-Age license in the specific content area.
