The P-12 certification program allows a student to obtain a major in an academic area for teaching at all grade levels. Since the course work for the teaching major certification sometimes differs from the graduation major, students should confer with the department chair in the major to verify specific requirements. In addition to major and minor requirements Art, French, German, and Spanish students must earn 31 semester hours in education including EDU 131, 233, 307, 309, 313, 337, 345, 423, 473-474. Music education students take 24 semester hours in education including EDU 131, 233, 307, 337, 423, 473-474 and meet the requirements in multicultural education and technology through coursework in the music department. To be recommended for certification as a teacher, a student must complete all requirements for the Kentucky Provisional Certificate and successfully complete appropriate PRAXIS Examinations.
