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 degree on the Bemidji State University campus. The DLiTE Program at BSU 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 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.

This program meets all requirements of the Minnesota Professional Educator Licensing and Standards Board (PELSB) for licensure in the state of Minnesota. If you are living in another state and interested in seeking licensure in state other than Minnesota, you will need to follow that state’s requirements for candidates prepared out of state.  Please contact the Department of Education in your state to learn about the requirements for licensure in your state.
