Carson-Newman provides an alternate pathway to licensure for those seeking to teach in high-need areas (e.g., math, foreign language, special education, ESL, science). The Educator Preparation Program (EPP) at Carson-Newman University is fully accredited by the Council for the Accreditation of Educator Preparation (CAEP), and each initial licensure area was part of the most recent joint review conducted by CAEP and the Tennessee Department of Education.
For admission to the M.Ed. Job-embedded Practitioner Licensure Program, individuals must show proof of employment by a school system within a 50-mile radius of Carson-Newman University’s main campus or in Wilson County, TN. Carson-Newman makes a recommendation to the Tennessee Department of Education for an appointment to the Practitioner License, which is valid for three years, while the practitioner completes coursework at Carson-Newman.
This license is available to individuals who have not completed traditional teacher education programs, but meet content knowledge requirements in one of two ways:
36-38 credit hours
Combination of online classes and on-site classes
A graduate degree is an investment in your future, and we want to equip you to succeed.
Our no interest payment plans help reduce up-front costs. Enrolling in a payment plan allows you to make monthly payments on your direct charges instead of paying your full balance before classes start.
Our Office of Financial Aid is available to guide you through the many options available to graduate students at Carson-Newman.
Please contact the Director of the Job-Embedded program, Dr. Ronda Blevins (firstname.lastname@example.org), for more information or to see if you qualify.
Completing my course of study at Carson-Newman helped me understand the importance of collaboration, communication and commitment to all students.
