Licensure Information

METL2The Master's in Effective Teaching and Leadership is designed to help practicing teachers enhance and revitalize their skills in the classroom and in leadership positions. The courses may be used to renew, add to, or professionalize their teaching licenses.  The Master's in Effective Teaching and Leadership is not designed for those seeking their initial teaching license.  However, the Graduate Initial Licensure Program and the Alternative Special Education Licensure Program  both provide a path to initial teacher licensure and can be pursued simultaneously with METL.
