Teacher licensure in North Carolina and qualification for licensure in most of the other states may be earned at four UNCG professional schools and various departments within the College of Arts and Sciences. Students may select licensure programs in a variety of subject areas.

The School of Education offers programs in Elementary Education, Middle Grades Education, Education of the Deaf, and Special Education; and jointly directs, with departments in the College of Arts and Sciences, programs for teacher licensure in core academic subjects at the secondary level.

The School of Health and Human Performance, the School of Human Environmental Sciences, the School of Music, and the College of Arts and Sciences, in collaboration with the School of Education, offer teacher education curricula.

Graduates of approved teacher education curricula are eligible for initial licensure on the basis of UNCG’s recommendation to the State Department of Public Instruction. As requirements may vary among departments, students should check with their major advisor for specific information regarding their program.
