Why earn an endorsement?
The teaching endorsements are programs designed to broaden the expertise and knowledge base of Kentucky educators at various levels, while adding valuable credentials through certifications to a Kentucky teaching license.
The teaching and learning environments of the 21st century often require teachers to enhance their skills and knowledge, through endorsements and certifications. These programs aim to properly prepare teachers to address various challenges in their classrooms and to develop, research or adopt effective methodologies that enable students to tap into their abilities and fulfill their potential.
Endorsements include graduate courses that may be counted toward a Master’s degree or Rank I program (for Kentucky teachers only). The endorsements are offered 100% online and can be completed as standalone programs or as part of a master’s degree or a Rank I program.
For additional information on endorsement options, admission and graduation requirements, please contact Betty Hampton, Director of Graduate Student Services, at 502-852-0411 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
