Graduate Licensure Program in Middle Level Science Education
Effective Jan. 19, 2017: The University of Kansas is not currently accepting applications for graduate admission to the Graduate Licensure Program in Middle Level Science 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 Middle Level Science* at the University of Kansas School of Education is designed for students who have already earned a bachelor's degree, perhaps in science. The program prepares individuals to teach science in 5th-8th grade classrooms. The program combines general education courses, professional education coursework at the undergraduate and graduate level, and science content courses with multiple field experiences in middle schools.
Benefits of the program include:
- Licensure-focused Outcome - Graduates can apply for initial teaching licensure in middle level (5th-8th grade) education from the state of Kansas.
- Program Reputation - KU’s Graduate Licensure Program in Middle Level Science 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.
