Earn your Bachelor of Applied Science in Teaching degree to gain dual qualification/licensure to teach pre-school-grade 3 (P-3) general education and special education.


Our new Bachelor of Applied Science in Teaching degree leads to teacher licensure with dual endorsements in both P-3 general education and P-3 special education. This enables graduates to teach children from birth through Grade 3. The degree was designed with the best practices in teacher preparation in mind and in collaboration with local school district partners.
