Add-On Licensure

With careful planning and additional courses, a Teacher Education Candidate admitted to Teacher Education can also earn a second license. Teachers holding a current North Carolina Continuing License or Initial License who are in active employment may enroll in the program. To do so, they must discuss their program requirements with the appropriate Add-on License Coordinator, who will then complete a personal course of study. If approved, the teacher must submit a copy of their current teaching license, official transcript, and take all required coursework at Methodist University.

Candidates who wish to obtain the add-on AIG licensure must:

  1. Confer with and have the consent of the AIG program coordinator
  2. Currently hold or are in the process of obtaining a full teaching license
  3. Successfully complete the following coursework:
  • EDU 4480 Curriculum Development for Gifted (3 s.h.)
  • EDU 4510 Methods of Teaching Gifted and Talented (3 s.h.)
  • EDU 4550 Nature and Nurture of Gifted and Talented (3 s.h.)
  • EDU 4650 Issues and Trends in Gifted Education (3 s.h.)
