USF’s Teaching License program offers multiple options for new and returning teachers.
If you have a bachelor’s degree in a non-education field, you are eligible to earn a teaching license through our Teaching License program. If you have an existing license, you can add subject and content areas through the program.
Our Licensing Advisor will evaluate your official transcripts (from all prior colleges) to determine which courses are needed for the specific teaching license.
USF’s Education department also offers coursework to renew an existing education license.
Intense intervention licensure is only available through the online master’s program.
USF offers online Transition to Teaching programs in Visual Art Education (P-12), Secondary Education (5-12), and Special Education (P-12) with licensure in Mild Intervention or Intense Intervention.
Upon completion of the Teacher Licensing and License Renewal programs, you can apply your licensing coursework toward a Master of Science in Education.
