Consisting of three courses in the Department of Teacher Education and Learning Sciences, our initial licensure program is one of the lateral entry programs in the Alternative Teacher Education Program offered at NC State. This program is designed specifically for provisional licensed teachers currently in the classroom. Courses are offered as extension courses and delivered entirely via online and field-based experiences.
