Adolescence to Young Adult Education
No teaching license? No problem
Malone University offers students who did not pursue an undergraduate degree in education but are now looking to start a new career in education the opportunity to earn their teaching license while earning their master's degree.
The Adolescent and Young Adult Licensure graduate program is designed for individuals who already have an undergraduate major in one of four content areas: Math, Science, History, or English. This program prepares them to teach grades 7-12.
This program allows candidates to pursue an initial teaching license at the graduate level. Program courses include content in educational foundations, learning theory, assessment, instructional methodology, instructional technology, content area reading, exceptionalities, and classroom management. Students who pursue this program will be required to complete one semester of student teaching. Faculty will work alongside of the student to find placement in a classroom setting for student teaching.
The curriculum includes coursework, both online and on-campus, and student teaching. On-campus courses are held just one night a week in the evenings to fit the schedules of any individual. Students will work with their Academic Adviser to create a program of study that will allow them to choose how quickly they complete the program.
