Teacher candidates pursuing a kindergarten through grade six (K-6) license complete appropriate specialty courses offered by the Department of Education and receive a Bachelors  of Education (B Ed) upon completion of required courses and clinical experiences. In the process of completing the K-6 program of study, teacher candidates choose one of five complementary options, four of which lead to a second teaching license. Candidates may choose to pursue a program of study leading to a birth through grade three license or a middle school (5-8) license in English, History, or Mathematics. The middle school license is delivered collaboratively between the Department of Education and the appropriate departments offering content for the 5-8-subject area. As a fifth option, candidates may pursue course work leading to a provisional license in special education.
