The teacher education program enables a student to obtain a major in an academic area and to complete certification requirements. Since the course work for the teaching major with 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 (if chosen) requirements, students earn 30-33 semester hours in education including: EDU 131, 233, 307, 309, 337, 333, or 339 or 341 or 343, 345, 423, and 467-468. 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.
