The graduate offerings in the UVU School of Education include programs that will help teachers with the Utah State Board of Education (USBE) required coursework needed to apply for endorsements to their existing Utah Teaching License. The endorsement programs are offered in partnership with school districts across Utah.

The following endorsement programs are available to teachers in local school districts that have partnered with the UVU School of Education to offer the USBE required coursework leading to these endorsements. The UVU courses listed under each endorsement have been approved by the Utah State Board of Education and meet their requirements for that endorsement.

Teachers who complete all required coursework and earn an endorsement in Educational Technology, Elementary Mathematics, Elementary STEM, English as a Second Language, Gifted Education, or Reading I can apply up to 12 of the credits towards the Master of Education degree at UVU.
