Initial License + Master's

Applications Are Being Accepted for All Terms

New students may enroll in a License + Master's program in the fall, spring or summer terms. Applications are reviewed on a rolling basis and candidates are encouraged to apply early.

Program Format

Classes are taught on campus in Berea, primarily during the day, with clinical placements in school districts near campus. While the graduate courses in this program are offered online, the majority of the curriculum is taught in traditional, on-campus classrooms. Length of the program will vary by teaching license and by how much coursework can be transferred from previous college work, however, most students take 2-3 years to complete this curriculum.

91ߣƵ University also offers an initial licensure program for adults that does not include the master's degree.

Program Outlines

Students in the License + Master's program choose a graduate specialization (educational technology or literacy) as well as the grade level and teaching area.

"I wanted a condensed program because I knew I did not want to return to school full time for four years. I found that BW offered a program that would allow me to receive the training and education I needed, with the ability to take license and master's level classes at the same time."

"I loved the flexibility the program offered me with online master's classes and that I still attended classes in person for my licensure requirements. This gave me the opportunity to collaborate with my peers, meet my teachers in person and participate in group projects."

"At first, I was only pursuing the licensure through BW, but my love of education quickly evolved into something greater, and I wanted to continue to follow that passion with Baldwin Wallace."
