Do you want to teach in order to make a difference?

The middle childhood level (grades 4-9) offers the opportunity to impact students who are undergoing the greatest and most rapid changes of their young lives.

Middle grades licensure provides the opportunity to teach in any two of four content areas:

  • Language Arts
  • Social Studies
  • Math
  • Science

As an option, Ashland University also offers a generalist endorsement to the regular middle childhood license that will add the two remaining content areas and allow graduates to teach in self-contained fourth through sixth grade classrooms.
