The program in secondary education has both a licensure and non-licensure track. The non-licensure track is designed for licensed teachers who wish to deepen their insight, gain additional knowledge, and improve their professional competencies; the licensure track leads to initial teacher licensure. The program is accredited by the National Council for the Accreditation of Teacher Education (NCATE), and the Tennessee State Department of Education.


Candidates for the licensure and nonlicensure tracks must satisfy all university requirements for admission to the UTC Graduate School. In addition, licensure students must submit appropriate minimum scores on the Praxis I Academic Skills Assessment (2000-2001 required scores: PPST Mathematics 173, PPST Reading 174, PPST Writing 173; CBT Mathematics 173, CBT Reading 174, CBT Writing 173). Information about this test may be obtained from the ETS Web site ( by clicking on the requirements for the State of Tennessee. However, nonlicensure track students may waive the Praxis I requirement for admission by providing evidence of a license to teach and teaching experience.
