Subject Area Endorsements

Subject area endorsements may be added to current Initial or Continuing Teaching Licenses by a combination of coursework and supervised practica. Endorsements may be added in the following subject areas:

If candidates wish to earn an endorsement in Chinese, Russian or Japanese, their transcripts will be evaluated during the admissions process to determine if they will be allowed to pursue the endorsement. In addition, in order to establish speaking and writing proficiency prior to licensure for Chinese, Russian and Japanese endorsements, for which no test is required by TSPC, the College of Education will require students seeking these endorsements to take the American Council on the Teaching of Foreign Languages (ACTFL) tests Oral Proficiency Interview (OPI) and Writing Proficiency Test (WPT) administered by Language Testing International (LTI). The minimal level of proficiency required for both tests must be Intermediate High. Tests must be passed prior to the practicum experience.
