† Because all Alverno post-baccalaureate licensure programs are individualized, previous coursework and classes may fulfill some course requirements. Alverno’s School of Education carefully reviews your transcripts to match past coursework to licensure requirements. After this review, a program for remaining requirements is outlined for each student.
Alverno also offers a program leading to licensure in art education. Requirements for this post-baccalaureate licensure program depend greatly on previous art experience and training. At Alverno, one can also attain art therapy (adaptive art licensure) or add it to an existing art education license.
Admission to this program requires completion of the master’s application process, as well as passing the Praxis I. For more information or for a master’s application packet, contact the Graduate Admissions Office at 414-382-6100, or toll-free, 1-800-933-3401, or e-mail email@example.com.
