Licensure and Master's Program (LAMP)
Students who hold a bachelor's degree can earn an Ohio teaching license and a master’s degree in education through completing either the one- or two-year LAMP program. Both programs offer lengthy, focused field experiences alongside required coursework, and are intended for students interested in teaching who have already earned a bachelor’s degree.

Some programs require very little undergraduate preparation while others require significant undergraduate coursework in a subject area. The courses you have taken as an undergraduate will determine how long it will take you to complete each of these programs.
The first step is to download the LAMP Application for Review of Coursework, which is found on each program page.
Additional measures may be used to determine admission to LAMP. These measures may include (but are not limited to) application, GRE, writing samples, interviews, and recommendation letters. In addition, students must be fully admitted to Graduate School. Students must consult with the appropriate advisor prior to applying.
