Teacher Licensure

Student and teacher share a laugh during an education class.Brevard’s Teacher Licensure program offers a hands-on approach to education that is above and beyond any traditional degree. Don’t just study elementary science - learn it by tracking Monarch butterflies. Don’t just memorize reading comprehension theory - apply it by working as a literacy tutor to struggling readers. Brevard’s professors take pride in preparing you to be an innovative, passionate, and equipped educator, no matter your concentration. Visit Brevard and meet with program coordinators to discuss the exciting possibilities!
