Distributed Learning in Teacher Education (DLiTE)

Online/hybrid elementary teacher licensure with option for middle level endorsement.

Not everyone can move to Bemidji full-time to work towards a BSU degree on-campus. The DLiTE Program aims to bridge this gap, and extend the opportunities and benefits of our Professional Education department to motivated students throughout the state and beyond.

Program Format

The DLiTE program is an online/hybrid, cohort-based elementary education teacher licensure program, spanning six semesters. Those who complete the program will earn a Bachelor of Science degree in Elementary Education.

Nearly all of the courses in our program are offered in a hybrid format, which means that a portion of each class is conducted face-to-face in Minneapolis three times each year, while the remainder is completed online. It is a mandatory requirement while in the program for students to meet in person to start their courses and to take their finals each semester.
