Teaching License Programs

Most public and private schools in the U.S. require teachers to meet state licensing and certification guidelines. Teaching license programs give individuals the preparation they need to study for their local state licensing exams. While teaching license courses won't directly lead to a license, they can fulfill the education requirement for state licensure.

Teachers for subjects like bilingual education, science and mathematics are in demand across the country, the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics reports. Opportunities for employment may also be greater in rural communities and urban areas in need of education reform.

Most teachers start with a four-year bachelor's degree in teaching or a related subject. Some teachers with a bachelor's degree in another field may earn a teaching certificate to meet state requirements. Some school districts require teachers to eventually earn a master's degree. Even where it is not required, many schools offer a higher salary for teachers with a graduate degree.

Teaching license courses vary depending on the grade level and area you want to teach. Elementary school teachers may take courses in child growth and development, child psychology, and literacy development. At the middle school and high school level, many teachers specialize in a particular subject such as social studies, math or music. In addition to subject-specific courses, all teachers generally study teaching methods, testing and assessment techniques and educational philosophy.
