What if I have a degree in a content area other than a teaching subject area?
The UAF School of Education's NCATE accreditation expects that candidates preparing to be teachers know and can demonstrate content knowledge. Candidates must know the subject matter they plan to teach.
Courses listed in the attachments below were selected to assist candidates in meeting content requirements and assuring that they have the content knowledge to pass a Praxis II content test. Applicants who hold degrees in areas other than those listed, may have their transcripts reviewed by a UAF School of Education faculty content specialist to determine what additional course work might be needed to teach in that academic area. Any additional course work must be completed prior to entering the secondary program.
