Teacher Education graduate program FAQ

Explore answers below to some of our most commonly asked questions about graduate programs in the University of Dayton Department of Teacher Education:

The University of Dayton offers licensure programs in the fields of early childhood education, middle childhood education, adolescent and young adult education, intervention specialist, art education, foreign language, and music education.

To be admitted to the Graduate School of Education and Health Sciences, applicants must have an undergraduate GPA of 2.75 or higher or a passing score on the GRE or MAT. To be admitted into a post-baccalaureate licensure program, applicants must have passed the teaching concentration(s) assessment tests from the Ohio Assessment for Educators. To remain in a graduate licensure program, students must maintain a 3.0 GPA.

Prospective initial licensure students need to have a transcript evaluation completed and then meet with a program advisor to develop their programs. The program advisors are available to assist with questions regarding teaching areas.

Most post-baccalaureate students earn the license first and then take the additional courses required for the master's degree. However, the master's degree core courses can be taken along with the licensure courses. The student teaching hours cannot be used toward the master's degree.
