Some states require teacher education programs to be accredited by the National Council for the Accreditation of Teacher Education (NCATE) or Council for the Accreditation of Educator Preparation (CAEP). Purdue Global's Master of Arts in Teaching program is not NCATE or CAEP-accredited, nor is it state approved for teacher certification or endorsements of any kind. Accordingly, you should determine whether graduation from a NCATE or CAEP-accredited program is required in the state in which you intend to seek licensure.

The Master of Arts in Teaching program and curriculum are designed to provide candidates with the background and practical experience that meet nationally recognized standards for such a degree. However, individual state licensing requirements vary and are subject to change. Thus, the University makes no representations or warranties as to whether the program meets the specific licensing requirements for any individual state. Candidates enrolled in the noncertification track who are interested in state certification must independently research the licensing requirements in any states in which they intend to seek licensure.
