This program is designed for teachers who hold a Minnesota license and want to add an additional license to expand their areas of expertise in their schools. Our courses are designed and taught by leading researchers. Knowing the quality of our curriculum and instruction, districts hire and retain our graduates because of their expertise and leadership.

Students can concentrate their coursework for state teaching licensure in one or more of the following licensure specialty areas:

  • Chemistry (grades 9-12)
  • Earth and space science ( grades 9-12)
