Muskingum University Launches New Dual Licensure Program

Muskingum University has received approval from the Ohio Department of Higher Education to offer a new dual licensure program starting this spring. The new dual-license program combines Primary Education (grades PreK-5) and the Intervention Specialist Mild/Moderate (PreK-12) into one integrated and innovative program.

The program is open to both licensed educators and to candidates who currently hold a bachelor's degree and wish to become licensed educators. Students can register now for Spring 2023 courses, which start on Jan. 9, 2023. Qualified students unable to start this January can also opt to begin in either March or June. The courses will be delivered online, and financial aid is available.

“The Muskingum University Educator Preparation Program is excited to launch our new dual Primary/Intervention Specialist License program for graduate students,” said Director of the Educator Preparation Program Dr. Timothy Slekar. “This dual-license approach recognizes the needs in today’s classrooms and a commitment to inclusive education for all children. The program curriculum is specifically designed for adult students and allows them to qualify for two highly desirable teaching credentials in one fully integrated online program.”

Students interested in the dual licensure program are invited to contact Nancy Bradley, Director of Graduate and Continuing Studies Educator Preparation Programs, at 740.826.8470 or Click here to learn more about the University’s graduate teacher education programs.
