Return to {$returnto_text} Return to: Arts & Sciences Academic Programs

This licensure is offered through the School of Arts & Sciences. The Communication Arts and Literature licensure program is designed to prepare students for a public and private teaching career in grades 5-12. The program is structured to meet the Minnesota Board of Teaching Communication Arts and Literature licensure requirements. Students must have a bachelor’s degree before being approved to pursue a Communication Arts and Literature licensure only program. The student must be accepted into and fulfill all requirements for the Teacher Education Department as well as the Humanities and Social Science Department.

Licensure Requirements


All persons completing approved teacher education programs in Minnesota institutions and seeking initial teaching licensures are required to successfully complete the Minnesota Teacher Licensure Examinations (MTLE) Basic Skills in reading, writing, and mathematics. Students must take this exam prior to department acceptance. Students are also required to pass the MTLE pedagogy and content area tests to be eligible for licensure.

The State of Minnesota requires a background check of all persons seeking teacher licensure upon completion of the preparation program and prior to issuing the teaching licensure. A criminal record does not automatically disqualify a candidate from licensure, but candidates must consider whether their backgrounds would jeopardize receiving licensure approval. Additional information may be required by the Board of Teaching to determine whether or not to grant the license.

Total - 88 Credits


All courses require a minimum passing grade of a “C”.
