Oregon TSPC provides several ways for teachers holding a preliminary teaching license to add additional single subject endorsements. The CTED program can support these educators with the demonstration of both content knowledge (passing score on the Commission-approved subject mastery test or completing Commission-approved coursework) and pedagogical knowledge (Commission-approved subject-specific pedagogy course). Educators who hold a professional teaching license should reach out to firstname.lastname@example.org to better understand what options are available to them.
Applicants applying as part of a MS degree program will be required to provide a passing score on the appropriate content NES/ORELA exam.
Applicants applying to take a methods pedagogy course will need faculty approval and current student status.
Faculty approval requests can be emailed to email@example.com.
Non-degree seeking students are required to obtain admission either as a Graduate School post-baccalaureate applicant, Community Education Program application, or through the CTED Stand-Alone Endorsement application.
