Alternative Paths to Teaching: A Directory of Postbaccalaureate Programs. Second Edition.
American Association of Colleges for Teacher Education, Washington, DC.
This directory presents information on 328 programs in colleges and universities for individuals who already have a bachelor's degree and wish to earn a teaching license, a master's degree in teaching, or both. Information was gathered from a fall 1995 survey of the member institutions of the American Association of Colleges for Teacher Education; information reflects State and institutional requirements at that time. Programs offered by State governments, school districts, or other sources are not included. Programs are arranged in alphabetical order by State and by institution of higher education and include the approximate time needed to complete the program, usually in months. Some programs require extended placements in elementary or secondary schools as part of the course of study which may cause hardship for those working full-time while studying. Descriptions offer an idea of each program's requirement, the levels and types of teaching license that may be earned, and whether or not a master's degree is offered. Program descriptions also list credential areas and contact person with address information. A glossary of terms is provided along with tips for anyone considering a teaching career. Additional teacher education resources are also cited. (NAV)
