Note: MASE students who wish to add a secondary endorsement normally must complete 15 weeks of student teaching. However, they may also graduate from our programs, apply for a conditional certificate, and become employed in a secondary classroom using their conditional certificate. Once they obtain one year of teaching experience in a secondary classroom, they can then apply for the standard certificate without the need for student teaching.  

 

If you are enrolled in a MASE12 program, you will need to take the Praxis exam that aligns with your content area in order to graduate from the program.
