Augsburg College offers a licensure program in elementary and middle-level education (grades K-8). It is approved by the State of Minnesota Board of Teaching and accredited by the National Council for Accreditation of Teacher Education. The department also works with students who want to teach in other states or countries.
Our licensure options are available in both the traditional weekday college schedule (M-F) and the weekend college schedule (F-Su).
This program is designed for those people who already hold a license for grades 1-6 but wish to add kindergarten teaching endorsement.
Go to the Augsburg College Online Course Catalog for descriptions of specific courses in our licensure programs.
Earning a Minnesota teaching certificate is not merely course-based. Students demonstrate their possession of rigorous outcome-based professional standards by completing a program portfolio as they progress through the Education Department coursework. Students are advanced to student teaching placements only after a favorable review of their readiness based on portfolio documentation.
