Teacher Education Requirements

CWRU students are able to become teachers through the Case Western Reserve University Teacher Education Program.  CWRU students can earn Adolescence/Young Adult (AYA) licenses in Integrated Life Sciences (biology major), Mathematics (mathematics major), Single Field Chemistry (chemistry major), Single Field Physics (physics major), and Dual Field Chemistry and Physics (double major in physics and chemistry).  Students must complete their major requirements as well as content courses required by Ohio licensure.  In addition, students take a second major in Teacher Education.  This requires 34 credit hours of education courses. 

Students must have a 3.0 GPA to apply. Noyce Fellows must maintain an overall 3.0 GPA or better, achieve a minimum 3.0 GPA in their education courses, and a 2.7 GPA in their content area courses.
