    Teaching Licenses

    17 license options for teachers of:

    Autism Spectrum Disorders License (B-21)

    Special Education teachers may add an additional license to teach learners with ASD from birth to age 21. Non-licensure certificate options are available for teachers without a Special Education license or for those who want to learn more about working with learners with ASD in community and non-school settings.

    Bilingual/Bicultural Education License (K-12)

    Bilingual/bicultural education is a program of instruction in English and another language, in which the two languages are used as a means for instruction for any or all the regular school curriculum.

    English as a Second Language (ESL) License (K-12)

    ESL teachers fill many roles, providing both language and academic support to their students. They are crucial in advocating for their students within the school system and in educating their colleagues about English language learners.

    Reading License (K-12)

    The licensed reading teacher will be authorized to teach reading skills, strategies, and comprehension to kindergarten through grade 12 students.

    Out of State Teachers Online Reading Course

    Minnesota requires teachers with an out-of-state teaching license to take a course addressing standards in literacy instruction to gain their full Minnesota licensure. Hamline University now offers an accredited course for both elementary and secondary teachers that has been approved by the state to meet this purpose.
