The Master of Education with a Major in Instructional Leadership and Academic Curriculum is designed to prepare you for the Pre-K to 12 classroom and to provide you with the knowledge to teach effectively.
While universities do not confer certification, your course of study will support your preparation for it. Many entities—such as private and charter schools—currently employ teachers without teacher certification, and many states have Troops to Teachers programs that help military personnel obtain teacher certification and interim alternate certification after they complete their military service. Most states require the equivalent of a college major in the subject area and passing scores on a teacher certification exam for certification. Those wishing to teach in public schools must be certified.
