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.

Attention prospective post-baccalaureate students:  There will be an information session for adults with a bachelor's degree who are interested in our teacher licensure program on Tuesday, October 18, 6:30 - 7:30 pm in Highsmith Union room 221.

Attention high school students:  The Department of Education will host a Future Teachers Conference on Thursday, November 10, 2016, 9:00 am - 1:45 pm.  You must register here in order to attend.  Registration is limited to 100 students.  If you would like more information about this event, please email Brook Thompson at
