One Education, Twice the Impact

Major + Teaching License = Career

Through the UNC Asheville teacher licensure program you will have the opportunity to pursue the subject you love while attaining a license to teach it!  In four years you can graduate with both a bachelor’s degree in a specific subject and a teaching license, making you marketable in two areas.  

With a liberal arts foundation, UNC Asheville graduates are teachers who have broad perspective; who think critically, reflectively and creatively; who are humane and committed to meeting the learning needs of all students; and who guide students using active inquiry to become effective and productive citizens in the 21st century.

The department also offers post-baccalaureate opportunities for individuals who already hold a bachelor's degree or higher and desire an initial North Carolina Standard Professional I Teaching License. You can learn more about earning a teaching license as a post-baccalauareate student by visiting the "Getting Started" page.

Students attending the conference from Asheville HS, Cherokee HS, Robbinsville HS, Swain HS, and West Henderson HS should see their chaperon for registraion information. All other students should email Brook Thompson at if they would like to be placed on the waiting list. Thank you!

There will be an information session for post-baccalaureate students interested in earning a teaching license on Tuesday, February 27, 7 - 8 pm in Highsmith 104. No registration is required.
