Bachelor of Education (B.Ed.)

A Bachelor of Education (B.Ed.) is for individuals with a bachelor's or master's degree and are seeking teacher licensure.

For example, a student already holds a degree in business and wants to teach high school business classes. That student would be exempt from general education requirements due to the degree already earned. He or she would need to complete the business and education courses required for a teaching license. Because the student already holds a business degree, in most cases few courses in the major would be required. Typically, a B.Ed. student is free to focus on education course work.
