The Union Institute & University Teacher Licensure program has two options: undergraduate and post baccalaureate. In both options, UI&U offers a unique way to help you earn your license through a flexible combination of brief weekend residencies and online seminars. The licensure program at UI&U is designed to match the professional interests and career goals of aspiring teachers with a learning schedule that fits busy lives. Each term, students work one-on-one with a faculty mentor and a small study group with similar interests. A student's previously earned bachelor's degree will determine the area of endorsement (see chart below).
