Endorsements are add-on licenses which expand your teaching credentials. BSU offers endorsements in the following areas:
- Communication Arts & Literature (Grades 5-8)
- Math (Grades 5-8. Courses also offered at the graduate level)
- Pre-Primary (Ages 3 – PreK)
- Science (Grades 5-8)
- Social Studies (Grades 5-8)
NOTE: Courses in endorsement areas may not be offered online. Use the following table as a guide. Generally speaking, only the pre-primary endorsement can be done completely online, and those classes meet synchronously online once per week.
|Course||Spring online||Fall online||Summer online|
|ENGL courses||generally no||generally no||generally no|
|MATH courses||no||no||on-campus only|

We encourage students interested in completing an endorsement to consult with their academic advisor. Credits can be taken in addition to your DLiTE plan of study each semester, as your schedule permits (and pending any noted prerequisites).
If you are already a licensed teacher and you want to add an endorsement, please work directly with Dr. Aspen Easterling in the BSU Professional Education department to put a plan together.
