Those seeking elementary certification must have earned at least 12 semester hours in each of the following content areas: English language arts, mathematics, science and social science. Those seeking certification in a content area for secondary certification must have an academic major in the appropriate teaching field or 32 semester hours including at least 19 upper-division hours. Specific courses may also be required in these areas. An official review of your undergraduate transcript can be done at no charge by contacting the education office.
