Our additional licensure program is for individuals who have a current Minnesota license in elementary education and want to add a license in early childhood. After successfully completing licensure requirements, including coursework and supervised student teaching, students are recommended for an additional Minnesota state license in early childhood education (Birth-3rd grade). This program leads to recommendation for licensure and does not result in an M.Ed.
