Human Relations Code

The PEP Program requires the completion of undergraduate coursework and a field experience of working with students with disabilities and direct involvement with various racial, cultural, language and economic groups. Course instructors in the College of Education and Human Services provide information and procedures for meeting these requirements as well as placement opportunities for the field experience. The Human Relations Code must be completed prior to Admission to Student Teaching. The Human Relations requirement fulfills the University Studies Program Ethnic Studies requirement for all education majors.

Pre-Student Teaching

The requirement for on-site supervised pre-student teaching clinical experiences are met in specific course work for each licensure area. Experiences occur in a variety of school settings.

Student Teaching

The Department of Public Instruction’s requirement for student teaching is a full-day, full-semester experience following the academic calendar of the cooperating school.  The Office of Field Experience offers Application Meetings the semester preceding the student teaching experience (February/September) to provide pertinent information. Email announcements provide details. Student teaching applications are due on March 1/October 1 preceding the student teaching semester.  All qualifying exams and eligibility requirements must be met at time of application. 

Internships

Internships are provided by participating districts in accordance with policies and procedures outlined by the Wisconsin Improvement Program (WIP) governed by the Department of Public Instruction.  A separate application is necessary and facilitated by the Office of Field Experience. Students must be enrolled in or have completed all undergraduate course work prior to student teaching and have a positive pre-student teaching field experience.  Also required are 3.50 professional GPA, and 3.1 in the major, minor and combined GPA. A salary of $4500 and an intern license are part of this state program.

Out of Area Student Teaching

Candidates can appeal for an Out of Area Student Teaching site that would be outside the required college Service Region if there are one of two compelling reasons: health or spousal relocation. The respective department chairs review the appeal.  A 3.25 professional GPA, and a 3.1 GPA in their major, minor and cumulative is required. A supervision fee is assessed.

Urban/Tribal Field Experience

In an effort to provide interested students with diverse field experiences, the College supports out of area placements in Milwaukee, Beloit, Racine and Kenosha as well as a tribal experience associated with either the Oneida or Menominee Nation. Eligibility requirements are identical to the out of area criteria (see above). For students choosing the urban option in Milwaukee, the Institute for Urban Education (IUE) will manage and facilitate placements.  Students become members of a cohort group from several UW System campuses and are engaged in meaningful professional development during their student teaching semester with a focus on culturally relevant instruction and understanding of the urban community setting.

International Student Teaching

International Student Teaching is coordinated by the Educators Abroad Student Teaching Ltd (EAST) and provides placements in over 50 countries. Eligibility requirements mirror the out of area policy stated above. The Office of Field Experience facilitates the stateside placement, done prior to the overseas placement, and candidate approval for the international experience. The Office of International Education assists in logistical and legal aspects of this program.

Teacher in Residency Program

Several area school districts provide select students the opportunity to become members of a cohort group that participates in a full-semester student teaching placement, intensive in-service, mentoring, professional development and co-teaching.  Candidates are placed with cooperating teachers who are committed to providing a rigorous teaching experience while incorporating frequent opportunities for reflective dialogue with other educational professionals and peers regarding best practices.

Teacher Licensure

Students are eligible to apply for a teaching license upon successful completion of a full semester of student teaching, submission of the Gateway 4 Portfolio, successful completion of the edTPA and an earned bachelor's degree.

Graduation

Students apply for graduation the semester before they plan to graduate. Applications are available at www.uwosh.edu/registrar/graduation. Student records are checked by the graduation examiner.

Students seeking licensure in an area of Regular Education and an area of Special Education should select the Dual (Regular and Special Education) Major.

Early Childhood-Middle Childhood Majors may choose to pursue a licensable or a non-licensable minor.

Middle Childhood-Early Adolescence Majors are required to pursue a licensable or a non-licensable minor. Students choosing a licensable minor will be licensed in that minor at the same level they have selected as their major with one exception.  Students completing a minor in Library Science will be licensed in Early Childhood-Adolescence (birth-age 21) in that minor.

All Secondary Education students have the option to choose a licensable or a non-licensable minor.

Factors to consider in selecting a major/minor are the student's aptitudes and interests. The job market is another worthwhile consideration. Students are required to discuss major/minor combinations with an adviser. Secondary Education majors and minors are listed in the Undergraduate Bulletin under II. DEGREES AND AREAS OF STUDY.

The curriculum for all areas of Secondary Education consists of several components, including all requirements listed in the University Studies Program, Curriculum Core Courses and Additional Licensure Requirements.

The Dual Elementary and Special Education Cross Categorical Major leads to licensure in one area of regular education and special education cross categorical (EBD, ID, SLD). Students may be dually licensed in Early Childhood Regular Education (birth to age 8) and Early Childhood Special Education (ECSE) (birth to age 8).

Students may also be dually licensed in Middle Childhood Through Early Adolescence (Age 6-13) in both regular education and special education cross categorical (EBD, ID, SLD).

Licensure Only and Certification Only Requirements - Baccalaureate Degree Holders

The College of Education and Human Services offers opportunities for individuals with non-teaching baccalaureate degrees to become licensed to teach in any of the programs offered (licensure program).  Individuals with a bachelor's degree in a math or science field and five or more years of work experience in a field related to math or science may qualify for licensure through the Alternative Career's in Teaching program (ACT!).  Individuals who are already licensed to teach are also able to extend their licensure to include additional developmental levels or a new major(s) or minor(s) (certification only program).  Contact the Center for Additional Teaching Licenses [(920) 424-3330 or www.uwosh.edu/excel/] to find out more about the steps to extend your license to a new developmental level or a new minor or major.

In elementary and secondary education, the student can complete these programs at the undergraduate level. Students should contact an education adviser in the Undergraduate Advising Resource Center (UARC) at (920) 424-1268 for information about licensure. Students wishing to be licensed in Special Education must enroll in the graduate program. Where programs exist, the student should consider the advantages of completing a graduate program to meet the new educational standards. Contact the Graduate School Office, Dempsey 330, (920) 424-1223, for information regarding the Special Education and additional education graduate programs.

Each person seeking licensure and/or certification in the above context is usually unique and therefore the requirements to be met cannot be listed here. Students seeking licensure or certification at the elementary or secondary levels should apply for undergraduate admission to the University and furnish official undergraduate transcripts of all collegiate level work. Upon acceptance by the University, an evaluation of transcripts will be done and a Titan Transfer advising session appointment will be scheduled. For Special Education students, the unit (cr.) check is done by the graduate coordinator in the Special Education Department and all advisement is handled by that department, (920) 424-3421. For graduate level elementary students, the unit (cr.) check is done by the graduate coordinator in the Teaching and Learning Department and all advisement is handled by the department, (920) 424-2477.
