Certification + Licensing


Your academic path through the Teacher Education Program will include earning your formal teaching licensure from the state of Wisconsin. This will be done through a subject-specific education teacher performance assessment (edTPA) during your student teaching experience. The classes you take for your special education major, minor and teaching method courses will prepare you to perform with confidence during your assessment. Before the process begins, it may seem complicated/scary, but trust us, you will sail through will flying colors after all the incredible preparation you will complete.
