For those seeking initial licensure there are the following concentration areas: PreK-6, middle school 6-8, and library science K-12 (Note: the library science concentration may also be done through Master of Science in Education, Secondary Education). For licensed teachers seeking additional education there are the following concentration areas: math specialist PK-8, library science K-12 (Note: the library science concentration may also be done through Master of Science in Education, Secondary Education), and elementary generalist. Post-baccalaureate endorsement programs are designed for individuals with a non-teaching BS or BA degree who want to obtain licensure or for those with a teaching license who want to be licensed in an additional teaching area. The four endorsement programs offered in elementary education are PreK-6, Middle School 6-8, Library Science K-12, and Mathematics Specialist PreK-8.
