Program Description:

Provide for the welfare of all children and their families with a specialization in Family and Community Services added to your Master of Arts in Education online degree program from University of Arizona Global Campus (UAGC).  In this specialization, you will support teachers with practical strategies and tools to support community-wide efforts to strengthen and support youth today.  Parent and community involvement is a crucial element to school success.  Promoting the social, emotional and academic skills necessary for student success in the 21st century requires a team effort of collaboration with schools, families and the community.  Partner with schools, families, and communities to help schools succeed.  You will study community development strategies, family welfare, and diversity.

An online degree from University of Arizona Global Campus (UAGC) does not lead to immediate teacher licensure in any state. If you want to become a classroom teacher, contact your state's education authorities prior to enrolling at UAGCto determine what state-specific requirements you must complete before obtaining your teacher's license. UAGCgraduates will be subject to additional requirements on a state-by-state basis that will include one or more of the following: student teaching or practicum experience, additional coursework, additional testing, or, if the state requires a specific type of degree to seek alternative certification, earning an additional degree. None of UAGC's online education programs are accredited by the Council for the Accreditation of Educator Preparation (CAEP), which is a requirement for certification in some states. Other factors, such as a student's criminal history, may prevent an applicant from obtaining licensure or employment in this field of study. All prospective students are advised to visit the Education Resource Organizations Directory (EROD) and to contact the licensing body of the state where they are licensed or intend to obtain licensure to verify that these courses qualify for teacher certification, endorsement, and/or salary benefits in that state prior to enrolling. Prospective students are also advised to regularly review the state's policies and procedures relating to licensure as those policies are subject to change.

This degree does not lead to licensure or certification
