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.
