The license+master's program is designed for adults who have earned a bachelor's or advanced degree and now want to become a licensed teacher through the state of Ohio. This program requires undergraduate and graduate courses leading to the Master of Arts in Education degree from Baldwin Wallace and a teaching license. The license+master's program stimulates and guides students to professional competency as elementary, middle or high school teachers. Graduates hold a master's degree that is highly respected in the educational community. 

Baldwin Wallace University also offers an initial licensure program for adults that does not include the master’s degree. 

Program Outlines

Students in the license+master's program choose a graduate specialization (educational technology, literacy or mild/moderate educational needs) as well as the grade level and teaching area.
