Add-on Licensure
Elementary Mathematics (K-5)

Program Description

Overview

The K-5 Mathematics Add-on License program is open to teachers licensed in K-6 elementary education who would like to obtain an add-on license in elementary mathematics. The program includes six courses totaling 18 graduate credit hours that meet the requirements for the K-5 Mathematics Add-on license and are focused on the mathematical knowledge needed for successful teaching of mathematics at the elementary level. The course format for these specialty courses is primarily online though students are sometimes required to meet face-to-face with the instructor at the beginning and the end of the semester.

For admitted students who are eligible there is a small internal scholarship program that can provide individual scholarships for successful course completion. Contact Susan Friel for more information.
