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.

Register for the Future Teachers Conference! The next Future Teachers Conference will be on Thursday, October 25, 2018. This event is open to high school and college students interested in pursuing a teaching license at UNC Asheville. Registration closes on October 18, or once we reach 80 students, whichever comes first. Please email Brook Thompson at if you have any questions.
