Agricultural Education Additional Licensure

This additional licensure program is for teachers who hold a current secondary Minnesota teaching license, and want to add an agricultural education license for grades 5-12.

Sample Curriculum

Coursework should not be taken toward an additional license without first applying for admission, as some requirements may have been completed by previous academic work or work experiences. If admitted, you will receive a customized contract that specifies your requirements to be recommended for licensure.
