2For teacher licensure, students must achieve the minimum score on the Praxis II Specialty Area and Principles of Learning and Teaching Tests as determined by the Arkansas Department of Education. For further requirements see Admission and Retention to Teacher Education and also the Criteria for Internships located on the College of Education home page.
3The elective courses placed in the degree should be used by students to take either COMS courses or courses in another area that the student would like to get certified (i.e. mathematics, business - both of which offer a minor). This will make graduates more marketable.
