The Problem: The Elementary education licensure requires a lot of credit hours and the program is difficult to complete in 4 years. If you want an endorsement in TESL or SPED this adds even more to your credit hour requirements and you have to take summer classes and 15+ credit hours to finish in 4 years. The Solution: Current Concentrations English Math Science Social Studies Psychology If we are allowed to use TESL or SPED endorsements as a concentration area, this removes the overwhelming credit requirements and makes a 4-year plan possible. Why Now & Why Students This option used to be available, but the new elementary licensure program removed these choices. SPED and TESL are in high demand and make teachers more marketable Others universities still offer this option. As students, we have a voice when we feel a program will disrupt our education. WE NEED TO USE THAT OPTION NOW!
