Graduate Licensure Program in Secondary Biology
Effective Jan. 19, 2017: The University of Kansas is not currently accepting applications for graduate admission to the Graduate Licensure Program in Secondary Biology Education at this time. Though, please let us know you are interested in the program by submitting the online inquiry form for a future admission cycle.
The Graduate Licensure Program in Physical Education* at the University of Kansas School of Education is designed for students who have already earned a bachelor's degree, perhaps in biology. The program prepares individuals to teach biology in 6-12th grade classrooms.
Benefits of the program include:
- Licensure-focused Outcome - Graduates can apply for initial teaching licensure in secondary (6-12th grade) education from the state of Kansas.
- Program Reputation - KU’s Graduate Licensure Program in Secondary Biology Education is offered through the KU School of Education, which recently ranked 9th in the nation was according to U.S. News & World Report’s Best Public Education Schools.
- Nationally-accredited Program - The KU School of Education is accredited under the National Council for Accreditation of Teacher Education (NCATE) Standards through the CAEP Accreditation System.
*This academic program satisfies the requirements for initial teaching licensure in Kansas, but does not fulfill the requirements needed to complete a master's degree.
