Secondary (8-12) and P-12 Certifications

The following certifications require an undergraduate major in the certification area or a very closely related undergraduate major. In some cases, an undergraduate minor in the certification area may also be considered. If you are unsure if you meet the admission criteria, please contact Dr. Julie Rutland by email or phone 859-622-1043 to discuss your educational background and goals.

If an applicant wants to earn a certification in an area unrelated to his/her undergraduate minor, two options exist.

  • Option 1:  Complete the undergraduate courses required for a major in the certification area and then apply to the MAT program. (This option usually does not qualify for financial aid.)
  • Option 2: Enroll as an undergraduate and earn teacher certification through a second undergraduate degree. For more information about undergraduate programs, visit here.
